"It's All Right With Me"
cd

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, is not shy to be autobiographical in her singing, and has a natural sense of swing. Quiet Conversations, a set of duets with pianist Frank Wilkins, is a major statement for the friendly and conversational singer.....Quiet Conversations is her finest recording so far....Scott Yannow

Here's To Life
duo

"In a setting as intimate as your living room, this duo fuses their experience and chops to sell a song like few others have the knack to do.  Reveling in being off the beaten path, this is one of those connoisseur dates you don’t have to have your nose in the air to enjoy".

  Watson-Jones is a swinging singer who has a sultry way of expressing herself in the grand tradition of the Jazz vocalist.
             -Cadence Magazine

When you sum it up, " One More Year is a wonderful excursion for Joan Watson-Jones  BRAVO!
             - Metronome Magazine

Among the highlights "Caravan" and the swinging "Blue Skies"
