What a mix! Singer Daline Jones cooks up Jazz, Soul, Pop and Latin genres into her own style that mirrors her look. She sings with reknown Mexican pianist Diego Ramirez, and together they make musical boundaries disappear and audiences coming back for more!
Daline's singing style has been called a mix of Natalie Cole and Diana Krall, with echoes classic Ella and Sarah. "Part jazz, part pop, part soul....class with sass!" (Destino Magazine) She was "cross-over" before the word was popular. Daline is racially and culturally mixed; "it shows up in the way I sing." She swings a jazz tune, caresses a soft ballad, and then gets down to do something funky. Her heart and soul are revealed through her dazzling smile and energy. And her onstage experience makes her a relaxed professional. Audiences love her.
The Daline Jones Group is a perfect Trio, playing a unique blend of Hip Jazz with an edge of Latin and Soul. Accompanied by the award-winning Diego Ramirez (from Mexico) on piano, keyboard bass and backing vocals, and Luciano Callado (from Brazil) on drums, percussion and backing vocals, this compact group packs a huge punch of talent!
Daline's energetic stage presence is matched by the virtuosity of Diego's piano and Luciano's incredible rhythms. This unique group knocks people out with their original music, covers, Jazz standards, Brazilian and Mexican tunes and old-school soul songs - all in their own style.
They are based in Los Cabos, Mexico, but travel worldwide. Daline and Diego traveled the USA in August and September 2011 playing famous (and almost famous) venues from San Francisco to New York to Hilton Head to Palm Springs. The Duo sold out every venue and they have been requested to do return engagements at all of them!
A schedule of their dates is in the Calendar section of this Electronic Press Kit.
Their CD, "Listening to the Light", is a collection of their original music with several covers, receiving radio play in the US, Mexico and Brazil and selling at the best online sites. And now, Fall of 2011, they have just released "Soft" featuring Diego's lush arrangements acompanying Daline's cashmere voice on covers of Jazz, Pop and Latin standards....everyone is saying, "It's time for something "Soft" and this CD hits the mark.
All three of the Daline Jones Group are pros and bring plenty of experience to thier music and performances. They are working constantly in Cabo San Lucas and it shows - they are tight, tight, tight!
Before doing their current CD, Daline released several critically acclaimed albums; “Share the Love,” was on Billboard’s "Top 20" Contemporary Jazz charts, and her album “On My Way” featured smooth jazz saxophonist Gerald Albright, WAR keyboardist Lonnie Jordan as well as pianist/co-producer Joe Massimno. Her songwriting chops are the legacy of her Beat-poet father, Jazz surrealist, Ted Joans.
Daline also headlined the famous Harry Denton‘s Starlight Room in San Francisco, as lead female vocalist for the Starlight Orchestra (1995-2005), singing everything from Ellington and Gershwin to Aretha Franklin and Chaka Kahn before moving to Los Cabos, Mexico. She has already made a big impression in Mexico, appearing at the famous Zinco Jazz Club in Mexico City several times with her Group and also with the Zinco Big Band. In 2007 and 2008 Daline was a featured artist for the San Miguel de Allende Jazz and Blues Festival and she is in constant demand for every large Festival and music event in Los Cabos.
"The (San Miguel de Allende) Festival is thrilled to have Daline kicking off the concert series with a soulful performance in the Jardin.......” Festival de Jazz y Blues in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

Written By: Daline Jones
When we look inside at our feelings past our pride,
We find fences there hiding things we cannot share.
And the fences we make, to help ourselves feel safe, don't work at all. Let them fall, to the ground.
Let them go and you'll find that when they're down, you'll be free.
No more pride left to hide and all the tears you cried that kept you locked inside behind the wall, let them fall, let them go. Truth is you know. Your heart tells you so, the way you must go. The power is there to move without fear, beyond all your imaginings. Only Now is, it's all that has the wings, to take you higher than you've ever been before, higher than you've ever been before.
Written By: Daline Jones
I want to tell you something. I want to answer that question that I have been asked all of my life; what are you? What are you? The truth is I am just like you; only different. The truth is, as my father wrote; "If you should see a man walking down a crowded street, talking aloud to himself, do not run in the opposite direction, but run toward him, for he is a poet, and you have nothing to fear from the poet but The Truth. Nothing to fear but The Truth. Nothing to fear but The Truth. You have nothing to fear but The Truth.
Written By: Daline Jones, lyrics; Diego Ramirez, music
Honoring Myself Being thankful, feeling gratitudeFor the love I found waiting inside of you.In this life, I didn´t know there could be,the kind of happiness and this, this bliss,you have given me. It was music, then the harmony,that caught both our hearts,captured totally.Everything seemed to fall in place,and the power of the Universe is helping us,helping keep us safe. So I wrote this song just to saythat I´m thankful everyday,for love you gave me, how it saved mefrom destroying myself.All that I´m sure ofis that your loveput all my fears back on the shelf.And that by loving you I knowI´m Honoring Myself! Yes, I wrote this song just to saythat I´m thankful everydayfor love you gave me,really saved mefrom everything elseAll that I´m sure of is that your loveis far beyond everything else.And that by loving you I knowI´m Honoring myself,Honoring myself,Honoring myself,Honoring...
