When British born Randy Jones first came to the United States, he received immediate critical recognition. He played with such jazz greats as Gerry Mulligan, Chet Baker, Milt Jackson, Bill Watrous and Harry James. He was invited to join the Dave Brubeck Quartet in 1978 and has remained with them ever since.
Randy Jones is noted as a versatile drummer, capable of swinging a big band, or dynamically weaving intricate patterns in the Quartet's odd time signatures. An avid collector of classical recordings, his solos reflect that interest with an unusually strong sense of melodic form and compositional structure.
