From a sea of synthesized tracks and ghetto rhymes, JABON explodes onto the jazz scene with
a refreshingly sophisticated sound embellished with just a hint of funk.
Drawn together by a passion for a feel good grove and a playfully carefree vibe, JABON fits
together like a puzzle. Their intricate riffs and sensual bass lines, explore issues of intimacy in a
cool and unique style reminiscent of old R&B love songs.
Jesse Richardson, Jr. (bass),
Chip DuBose (guitar),
Chip Dubose III (drums),
*Various other Musicians*
are the guys with the feel good sound.
JABON has performed in every major club in Chicago. They have graced the stage with music
greats like: The Average White Band, Aretha Franklin, Mavis Staples, Otis Clay, Otis Day and the
Knights, Slave Original Members Mark Adams & Mark "DRAC" Hicks, Poi Dog Pondering, Sonia Dada, Roy Ayers, The Barkays, Dajae, Cameo.

JABON’s new CD, titled “79th Street,” takes listeners on a soulful exploration of love, relationships and things that go “Ooooh!” in the night. The album features En Vogue songbird Terry Ellis, who belts out her “Sunshine.” In true diva fashion.

A soulful journey, a feel good sound, a feel good groove and a feel good spirit. Jabon is about Love, Relationships, Life. Their music is soul touching, it’s watching the sunset on a summer’s night while admiring the glow from the Chicago skyline sounding. Enjoy the many textures of Jabon’s sound - funk, house, R&B, new age, jazz, and many finer distinctions best left to the discerning ear to identify. And with these flavors, it is no wonder Jabon is one the hottest Nu-Jazz Bands in Chicago. With a stellar cast of jazz luminaries featuring Jesse Richardson and Chip Dubose.
