An equally passionate jazz vocalist and advocate for the music, Joan Watson-Jones is well known throughout New England as both a singer and the creative force behind her own popular jazz shows. She produces and hosts the cable television program “The Jazz Room Live” seen in Boston and the Internet ased radio program “The Jazz Room"- her 1/2 hour show on www.cyberstationusa.com

Joan Watson-Jones is a very expressive vocalist who burns quietly with inner intensity when she sings. She has deep understanding of the words she interprets, and has a natural sense of swing. She brings an energy to her Jazz that would appeal to new listeners and long time jazz fans.

Joan’s parents both had fascinating careers. Her mother Aurelia Wheeldin was a dancer who spent 1924-26 performing at the Moulin Rouge in Paris. Not only did she dance but she worked up an act with another dancer in which they regularly boxed three rounds on stage, causing a sensation. Back in the United States she was a pioneering female boxer, performed in Eubie Blake’s Shufflin’ Along, and appeared at the Apollo Theatre in a production called Harlem before retiring in 1940 to marry Joan’s father.

Joan’s Dad was a physician who became one of the 12 doctors to co-found the Upper Manhattan Medical Group, the first clinic in Harlem that was run entirely by African-Americans. Among his patients through the years were Billie Holiday and Mercer Ellington. The hospital was immortalized by Billy Strayhorn when he wrote “U.M.M.G,” a piece recorded by Duke Ellington.

.On Quiet Conversations- A Duet , the followup to her earlier well received efforts One More Year and I Thought About You, the singer steps boldly into the spotlight on a program of intimate duets with pianist Frank Wilkins.
