Biography

Hollywood, Calif. (1959 – present)

Jack Jones (born Jan. 14, 1938, in Hollywood, Calif.) is a traditional pop singer.

He is the only son of actors Allan Jones and Irene Hervey. He released his first album in 1959 on Capitol Records, but didn’t find success until he moved to Kapp Records in early 1960s. During that time, he was rated highly by Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland called him the best jazz singer in the world, although Jones was always a straight pop singer (even when he recorded contemporary material) and rarely ventured in the direction of jazz. Jones won two Grammy Awards. He performs concerts around the world and remains popular on the casino circuit.

Some of his best-known songs are “The Impossible Dream,” ” “Wives And Lovers” (1964 Grammy Award, Best Pop Male Performance),” “The Race Is On,” “Lollipops and Roses” (1962, Grammy Award, Best Pop Male Performance), “Lady,” and “The Love Boat Theme”.
