*Slow Jam Sundays - Donell Jones*


Chicago's Donell Jones has been one of my favoriteSoul/R&B artists since he came onto the scene in the mid 90's. Born the son of a gospel singer Jones has the talent, emotion, love & respect for music. Not your typical singer, Donell sings in a quiet voice, has a laid back groove with smooth lyrics. You can feel his influences ( Stevie Wonder, Teddy Pendergrass, & the Isley Brothers) on each of his albums. He recorded his first album in 1996,My Heart, as a singer/songwriter/producer for La Face Records. With Eward Farell they formed a partnership with La Face. He wrote songs for Usher, Maddona, Silk and others.
