HAYDEN JONES

COVER ($15 AT THE DOOR)

The Roosevelt House is what developed out of what Jones calls “the jazz version” of the group: Aaron Varnell (saxophone); Jacob Breier (tenor guitar); Cameron Knowler (lead guitar); Julian Rivera (cello and bass); and Amy Wilkinson (second vocals). “I got them together and we did it,” says Jones.

Traces of gypsy jazz, swing and blues run through the first few songs. On opener “Where Did You Run to Sally?” Jones croons like a young Dean Martin or second-album Lou Reed, with touches of early Devendra Banhart as he goes from looking for his mother to waiting for his lover. A chorus of friends join in on the hook, with Wilkinson leading the way. The whole thing sounds completely improvised.
