Bobby Jonz aka Bobby Jones

Jones has a deep history on the Chicago blues scene, going back to the late 1950s when he was the featured vocalist with the legendary Aces band of Dave and Louis Myers; he also worked with famed guitarist  Jody Williams in the early 60s, the legendary Syl Johnson, and many others.  In the 80s Jones started recorded in the chittlin' circuit as Bobby Jonz, releasing a host of singles in the decade ("If You Got The Touch I Got The Time") in addition to an obscure LP before signing with Johnny Vincent's Ace label. There he released "In The Mood For Love" and followed it up with a Country effort called "This is Bobby Jonz Country".  Two more unsuccessful CDs followed before returning to the Blues market with his original name. He was featured on The Mannish Boys' 2008 disc "Big Plans" before releasing a new solo album called "Comin' Back Hard", which also features the Mannish Boys.
