Jack Jones

The son of actors Allan Jones and Irene Hervey, Jack Jones was born in Hollywood in 1938, the same day his father recorded his famous track Donkey Serenade. As a child Jack studied drama and singing and first started performing in Las Vegas with his father Allan and was soon signed to Capitol Records, recording his debut album This Love Of Mine in 1959. It included the popular track This Could Be The Start Of Something Big, but it was the ballad Lollipops & Roses in 1961 which made him a star. His most successful releases were on the Kapp label - for whom he recorded 20 albums including Shall We Dance, Call Me Irresponsible, Bewitched, Where Love Has Gone and The Impossible Dream - producing a succession of hit singles, most notably the Burt Bacharach/Hal David song Wives And Lovers. Jones also had major success on the RCA label throughout the 1970s as he became one of the defining artists of middle of the road music and continued to perform concerts in the 1980s, although his recording career slowed down. In 1992 he had renewed success with an album of George & Ira Gershwin songs (The Gershwin Album), followed by a tribute album to Tony Bennett and in 2010 made a further comeback with the album Love Makes The Changes.
