    Renauld Jones Jr. has passed away. His dad was one of the great Basie lead players. Renauld Jr. was Sammy Davis' lead player before Fip Ricard. He was a power house lead player.
    I worked with Jonesy in many different settings. We played in The Symphony Of The New World, a fully integrated orchestra, in the 60s. I played the break-in of "Golden Boy" in Philly with him. I lost touch with Jonesy when he moved to California.

    R.I.P. Jonesy.
