4th Avenue Jones
4th Avenue Jones’. Anchored by Ahmad, whose 1994 single "Back In The Day" thrust him into hip-hop’s elite, 4th Avenue Jones’ is a hip-hop outfit who avoid trite commentary on violence and drugs. Instead, the group uses its music to spread a message of empowerment, as vocalists Ahmad, Tena Jones and Jabu flow flawlessly over the always-strong instrumentation supplied by Tim (guitar), Phat Albert (not pictured - bass), Drummy Dave (drums), and Gailybird (violin). It’s a group that thrives on its live shows and makes ample use of its accomplished musicians during each performance, as Ahmad, Tena and Jabu draw much of their energy during shows form the lively playing of the Jones’.
