Natalie’s Grandview presents The Zakk Jones Trio on the Corner Stage, located on the restaurant/bar side of the venue. For this dinner performance, there will be no admission charge, but tips are greatly appreciated.
The Zakk Jones Trio is a dynamic group that fluidly blends styles as varied as modern jazz, Americana/country and fusion, often even in the same songs. Between unique arrangements of classic songs/standards and original material, the trio brings any audience a fresh listening experience that’s filled with creative improvisations. The trio has spent countless hours gigging, rehearsing, writing and simply hanging together, which is all an anchor for their strong musical connection. The Zakk Jones Trio has performed at renowned venues/clubs like Bar Next Door (NYC), Bop Stop (Cleveland), Dick’s Den (Columbus), Schwartz’s Point Jazz & Acoustic Club (Cincinnati) Pausa Art House (Buffalo) Light Club Lamp Shop (Burlington, Vt) and many more! Their debut album “Mise-en-Scéne” was released in 2019 digitally, and two more releases are slated for 2022.

He can be seen frequently with Doc Robinson, the Tony Monaco Trio, Hoodoo Soul Band, Third Shore Collective and many more. In mid-2019 he released his debut trio record “Mise-en-scène”, produced and mixed by Grammy-winning professionals Jeff Ciampa and Rob Griffin, known for their long standing work with Wayne Shorter.
