In Memoriam

Chris Jones
Songwriter, Guitarist and Troubadore
September 13, 2005

Chris Jones Guitarist Chris Jones died of lung cancer in the Albert-Schweitzer-Hospital in Northeim, Germany on Tuesday, September 13th 2005.   Chris made numerous recordings on German audiophile label Stockfisch Records.  He made two albums as the feature artist and worked as a wonderful accompanist with many of the singer/songwriters featured on the label.   His work with Sara K on “The Nautilus Tour” video and her “Waterfalls” CD are outstanding examples of his ability to empathise with a singer.   He visited Melbourne briefly in January 2004 and played some low-key performances.   We are deeply saddened by Chris's death but very greatful for the legacy of wonderful music he has left us.

“Susie Napper and Margaret Little of Les Voix Humaines play as one - controlled, elegant and exquisitely refined.   The warm lyrical approach always seems just right, creating a musical meditation that wafts sensuously over the listener.”
- Julius Timmerman, Early Music News Sept 2003
