He’s toured the world and played with greats ranging from Stan Getz to Chaka Khan and considers Art Blakey his biggest influence even though his music, dubbed “R & Bebop,” infuses everything from blues to dancehall.

Get a taste of Jones’ eclectic sensibilities when he brings his band Culture-Versy to the Oakland Public Conservatory tonight. The group blends Hip Hop, Soul, Jazz and Funk into a totally unique sound. Kick your week of with a bit of melody.
