Now's the Time: Carmell Jones
Carmell Jones was born in Kansas City, Kansas, in 1936. He’s probably best known for his contribution to Horace Silver’s classic 1964 recording “Song for My Father”. Locally based jazz enthusiasts regularly turn to Jones’ 1965 album Jay Hawk Talk. Jones appears alongside Joe Henderson in Silver’s band in the embedded video. The trumpeter died in 1996.
