Freddie’s great talent — bred from his musical roots in Memphis, his jazz studies degree from the University of North Texas, and his passion for playing — has earned him a devoted following in contemporary jazz circles. Freddie Jones is a popular jazz trumpet player and composer in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. He is also the official trumpeter for the Dallas Cowboys and plays the National Anthem at all the home games. With an amazing musical gift, Freddie Jones kicks up the energy of a room a notch or two and thrills a jazz-lover’s soul! Audiences are in awe of the sound Freddie Jones can coax from his horns. Freddie has taken his trumpet and his group on the road throughout the southwest, performing in hot spots from Austin’s’ The Elephant Room to Little Rock’s Riverfront Auditorium to numerous festivals in the Dallas/ Fort Worth Metroplex, Oklahoma City, and everywhere in between. He has also performed in Paris, The Hague and Rotterdam. His band, the Freddie Jones Jazz Group, never fails to pull in the audience and deliver an exciting sound. An adjunct professor at Brookhaven College in Dallas (TX), Freddie has shared the stage with such greats as David Sanborn, Freddie Hubbard, Chuck Magione, George Benson and Najee. He also has a vigorous roster of private students and is known for his mentoring of upcoming trumpet players. On the sly, Freddie conducts fundraisers to buy trumpets for high-school band students. Freddie has produced three highly acclaimed CDs and is a frequent guest on other musicians’ recording projects. His CDs are available online at CD Baby and Amazon, and at Borders Books and Music and Waterloo Austin.
