Daline Jones




Daline’s singing and songwriting chops are the legacy of her Beat-poet father, Jazz surrealist, Ted Joans. He made sure she spent her early years listening and seeing the Jazz Greats in the clubs of their native New York City. That smart and fortunate exposure to Jazz when she was so young lead her to pursue a life in music, and now her own experience onstage makes her a relaxed professional.

Daline's earliest recording sessions were for Lionel Richie and the Commodores, where she worked with the top studio session vocalists in the business. She went on to release several of her own critically acclaimed albums; achieving Billboard's "Top 20" on the Contemporary Jazz charts. Daline worked with smooth jazz saxophonist Gerald Albright, keyboardist Lonnie Jordan of WAR, jazz guitarist Ron Eschete, keyboardist Tim Heintz, composer and trumpeter George Shaw, and pianist, producer and musical director Joe Massimino, among many others.

Headlining the famous Harry Denton‘s Starlight Room in San Francisco, Daline was the lead singer for the renowned Starlight Orchestra from 1995-2005, before moving to Los Cabos, Mexico where she now makes her home.She's made a big impression in Mexico, performing frequently at the internationally known Zinco Jazz Club in Mexico City with her own group and also as lead vocalist with the 17-piece Zinco Big Band. Daline opened the San Miguel de Allende Jazz & Blues Festival in 2007 and 2008, and she is always asked to sing for every large festival and music event in Los Cabos.

Daline lives full time in Cabo, (but away from town, in the desert, on the ocean) with her husband, two cats and two adopted dogs. When she isn't gigging or recording, Daline loves teaching yoga, and was certified as a professional yoga instructor in 2001.  "Yoga helps my singing and singing helps my yoga" says this multi-faceted mix of talent!


With other gifted musicians, the Daline Jones Group plays a hip blend of Jazz with an edge of Latin and Pop Soul. Most often, Daline works with her musical partner, the award-winning composer, Diego Ramirez (from Mexico), on piano, keyboard bass and vocals. Together Daline & Diego have worked to create a brand that now has legions of fans all over Mexico and the US. They successfully toured the US together as a duo in 2011, 2012 and 2013. They play together, compose and write together and just completed a full CD of all original songs.

Joining them, the multi-talented Joaquin Gonzalez (from Mexico) on drums and percussion; expand sthe Duo to a Trio and this compact group packs a huge punch of talent! Joaquin is a sought-after drummer known for his high energy onstage.  Then, for some events, additional musicians such as longtime Cabo favorite, Howie Clifton on sax and flute, and Kike Cornejo on guitar and vocals, join in and take The Daline Jones Group to a whole other level. The dancing doesn't stop when this group is playing! They knock people out with their take on Jazz standards, Latin tunes from salsa to samba, old-school pop, rock to reggae - while they light up the stage with music and energy.  Contact them for your event well in advance. Price lists available on request.
