I was super happy to participate in the 2017 Bass Convention in Ithaca with the Mimi Jones Band, what fun! 
My happiest moment was reuniting with my first teacher, Linda Mcknight, I am so grateful to her, for preparing me for Manhattan School of Music, and training me throughout college.

Thanks Linda! & Thanks Mark Ramirez for orchestrating that, so sweet
In Memory 

My heart sank, along with an entire community, when the news of our beloved Geri Allen's
passing became known. 
If I could see her again I'd tell her how much of an inspiration she was/is. How the level of her playing was so incredible, and how I saw her as a beautiful, black woman, full of grace yet super strong all at the same time. "Rest in Peace Geri"
 
Services for Prof. Allen will be at Bethany Baptist Church 275 West Market Street, Newark, NJ Wake 7/7/17 (6p-8p) and Funeral 7/8/17, (11am)

Today we also lost drummer extraordinaire John Blackwell, I met him several years ago in Italy playing with legendary Prince, I will never forget that hang in Umbria. Rest in Peace John, my heart goes out to you & your family.
 

 
I'm truly looking forward to seeing you soon, keep your spirits up and your heart open,
Huggs & Kisses,
Mimi
