Mimi Jones, multi talented bassist, vocalist and composer, brings her beacon of musical light to the world while embracing a positive future with her inspiring messages. Mimi’s elegant sound is an eclectic mix of genres based on a strong jazz foundation that leave room for funky bass grooves, world beat rhythms, and gentle textures. Her inspiring debut release CD, “A New Day” is bursting with original compositions seamlessly melting from one song to another and caressed by the warmth of Mimi’s sultry voice. The title of the CD speaks of embracing a changing world with a positive point of view while maintaining the courage to move forward just as the new persona and alter ego, Mimi Jones, was transformed from “side man” Miriam Sullivan in order to more appropriately express her own messages of change and future progression.

Mimi Jones has shared the stage with such talents as the great Lionel Hampton, Roy Hargrove, Rachel Z, Sean Jones, Kenny Barron, Jesse Davis, Ingrid Jensen, Kevin Mahogany, Denis Charles, Tia Fuller and Onaje Allan Gumbs just to name a few. Besides receiving a Bachelor’s of Music Degree from the Manhattan School of Music she also studied, attended workshops or mentored with Lisle Atkinson, Barry Harris, Ron Carter, Milt Hinton, Dr. Billy Taylor, Yusef Latif, Max Roach, and Latin bass techniques with Guillermo Edgehill. The Mimi Jones Band has performed at the Jazz Standard, the Blue Note, and the Kennedy Center, Dizzy' s Coca Cola. For more about Mimi Jones visit: www.HOTTONEMUSIC.com.
