JACK JONES

John Allan "Jack" Jones (born January 14, 1938) is an American jazz and pop singer. He was one of the most popular vocalists of the 1960s. Jones's biggest pop hit was "Wives and Lovers" by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Today, the lyrics may seem chauvinistic to some, but this song was a kind of anthem for the urban male of the Kennedy era, hauntingly, since it was climbing the national charts. In the Kapp years, Jones recorded almost twenty albums. Jones moved from Kapp (in the UK, London Records) to RCA Records in 1967. His first album in the new company was called Without Her. The following releases, If You Ever Leave Me, L.A. Break Down, and Where is Love were in roughly the same style of the classic Kapp records, but with slightly more contemporary vocal stylings. After A Jack Jones Christmas, he decided to more significantly revamp his musical direction and image, changing his appearance from the smooth club entertainer of the 1960s Las Vegas scene to the long-haired singer of the early seventies. A Time For Us (1970) was one of the albums which marked his transition towards a middle of the road sound.
