Favorite JJ song(s): every one
First of all...may I say I adore you ! Every interpretation of a song I always say to myself ...well that's the definitive version of how it should be. You're a master class.
We are trying to get to see you for our 31st anniversary at Feinstein's for Thurs. the 28th of June.
Thank you for all you do and blessings to you and your family.

Favorite JJ song(s): Once Upon a TIme
I am an old lady of 78 and I have heard and seen all the love song "singers" of the past 50 years. NO ONE is better than our wonderful Jack Jones. He really makes me cry! His personal life confuses me for someone who sings about "love" so well! God Bless you Jack and find lasting love at last!
Favorite JJ song(s): People Will Say We're in Love, Lady, Rainy Day
The oher favorite performers: Sinatra
As a vinyl collector, I have many, many of Jack's original LPs and continue to play them often. A purist, I don't want his music "digitized, and remastered" - I want to hear it as it was originally played on 1960s turntables.
I have been a fan of his music for over 20 years now. When he was cranking out the hits for Kapp and cutting his classic LPs, I was still in the crib, as I was born in 1960 when he was a rising star. It wasn't until I was in my 20s & 30s (late 80s & 90s) that I first heard his recordings. His earliest material from the early-mid 60s was the absolute BEST of his career. As a lifelong pianist myself, playing by ear, I have learned much of my material from Jack's records.
What a life he must have had. He grew up in a era I would give anything to live in today.
Hats off to a GREAT star!

Mr. Jack Jones:
I saw you in Newport .KY in 1974 at the "BeverlyHills Supper Club", and as you know burned to the ground in May, 1977. Also, saw you in Louisville, KY
in 2010. Jack: I think you are still at the top of your game, and you sing Jazz
so well. I love the CD from England "Live" 1996. My dearest"Barbara' Loves
"The ImpossibleDream". Stay well Jack.

Hello Mr Jack Jones, My name is Maria from Surrey in England. I have loved your music and your voice since the 60's. With your wonderful voice you have warmed my heart many times. I love all your songs, and have many of your album's. I hope you are going to grace us soon with another concert here in England, and I certainly will be there. I know you will not remember me but, I have been introduced to you on a few occasions by a very good old friend of ours, Jimmy Blakemore.We were friends for over 35 years, and I remember him with great affection. I send you my best wishes for a happy marriage, and a wonderful Summer filled with happiness, love and laughter. Don't ever stop performing for us, the world, and I, love you. Warm regards, Maria ( Welsh by birth)
Favorite JJ song(s) : "Where Love Has Gone" and "Real Live Girl"
The oher favorite performers: Sinatra, Bennett, Damone, Doris Day, Clooney, etc.
Always loved your music, Jack, and hope you're doing well. I grew up in the south Florida area during the 50's and 60's...and heard you on the radio all the time. I loved the ballads, so your "Where Love Has Gone" album still remains my favorite. Just wanted to say "hi"...and please take care.
More info surfacing. It is most likely that we are related on my grandmother's side, not my grandfather's. My grandmother was Jane Williams. She had 4, possibly 5 siblings. Sisters: Bessie (Evans and Watkins), and Margaret Bichler. She and her husband, Fernell, owned Bichler Florist, in Taylor, right on Main Street. Brother: Daniel, and possibly another brother, Thomas. I don't know why that is just a possibility unless he died at birth. Their parents were Gomer Williams and Anna Jones. If you can fill in any of the blanks, I would love to hear from you. Perhaps the Jones - is a brother of Anna - your father's father? That makes sense because the sibling, Daniel, could have been named after your grandfather. I want to cross this off my bucket list. I am 70, and you are 74, so, I will continue digging. I have several of your records, but would love to start collecting your albums in CDs. Thinking of you, and still digging. Wishing you the best!
my whole im a fan of jack beautiful voice and lyrics greeting from holland and live long//////////////////////////////////// //175
I heard a song by Jack called "The I Love You Song" on FM radio years ago but have never been able to find it. Now I see that it is on an album called "Write Me A Love Song Charlie" with songs by Charlie Aznavour. I can't seem to find where to buy it. Do you know where I can get a copy?
I have a correction to my previous message. I meant to say that perhaps my mother's middle name came from your grandmother. I knew that your mother was Irene Hervey. I heard that even as a child.
