Jazz and Blues extravaganza as Rockin' In Rhythm hits stage
He is in the midst of a UK tour fronting The Manfreds but bluesman Paul Jones is making time to appear with an old friend at two special shows.

Paul is joining forces with jazz icon Digby Fairweather for Rockin' In Rhythm gigs at G Live, Guildford, on April 10 and the Beck Theatre, Hayes, on May 28.

Backed by Digby's band, Digby Fairweather's Half Dozen, the duo will ensure fans are in for a dynamic double bill of blues, jazz and rock.

Bluesman: Paul Jones

Paul enjoyed hits in the early '60s with Manfred Mann's Earth Band but left in 1966 to pursue a solo career. He also became an actor, appearing with the National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company, and starring in the West End and on Broadway. In 1979 Paul formed The Blues Band with Manfred Mann buddy Tom McGuinness and in 1991 joined the reformed Manfreds. For the past 26 years the workaholic 71-year-old has presented a weekly blues show on BBC Radio 2.

Singer, actor, DJ: Paul Jones

Trumpeter Digby Fairweather has an equal hunger for music and has appeared on more than 60 albums since 1977. Having played with various ensembles he founded Digby Fairweather's Half Dozen in 1995. They began touring with jazz legend George Melly in 2003 and played on several of his albums. The successful collaboration came to an untimely conclusion with George's death in 2007. Digby then teamed up with Paul Jones, who had compered George's last live show, and it has proved to be a winning formula.
