A self-taught percussionist, George Jones has been a mainstay on the Pittsburgh music scene for more than 30 years and recognized as the finest conga player in the area. George's mother was a bass player with the famous “International Sweethearts of Rhythm”, traveling across the country until settling in Pittsburgh in the fifties She was the inspiration and motivation for George's interest and love of jazz, exposing him to “Jazz at the Philharmonic” at an early age. During a stint in the military in the sixties, George played on pots and pans - anything he could get his hands on - and developed his interest in African drums and rhythm.
