Ed began playing saxophone at the age of 15. In 1984 he graduated from Middlesex University with a degree in music, and for a while served an apprenticeship as a street musician. Ed’s subsequent playing credits include George Benson, Horace Silver, Jimmy Witherspoon, Dianne Reeves, Charles Earland, Clifford Jarvis and Dr Lonnie Smith. “A formidable saxophonist. Ed Jones may have hit his highest profile through his work with bands US3 and Incognito, but he’s an improviser to his fingertips, a player of forceful imagination and one of the UK’s most distinctive saxophonists.” - John Fordham, The Guardian.
