Jazz Forest is unlike most jazz groups. This group is led by veteran Hollywood TV and Film composer Ron Jones. His work scoring many of the most popular TV series such as Star Trek:TNG, Family Guy, American Dad and many more are heard around the world daily. Ron formed Jazz Forest as a way to bring high-energy, professionally performed and produced music to Northwest audiences. The band plays an eclectic mix of new compositions and arrangements that have deep roots in tradition while exploring the best of today’s sounds. The players are each stand-out performers and leaders of their own groups and represent some of the best pros in the NW.

His credits include hundreds of recordings as well as hundreds of TV and Film soundtracks.
