Born in Montreal, Oliver Jones performed his first piano concert at five years old. He has become one of the most celebrated representatives of the Montreal Jazz Festival and a worldwide musical ambassador for Canada on many international tours. This exclusive authorized biography begins with his roots - the enslavement of his African ancestors and immigration of his parents to Canada from Barbados - and takes us to the present.

Oliver Jones has received many awards to recognize his achievements, both as a musician and as a human being: the Martin Luther King Award, a Juno Award, the Cool Jazz Award of the Izzy Asper Foundation, the Order of Canada, the Order of Quebec, the Oscar Peterson Award, the Governor General's Performing Arts Award, and in 2006, two National Jazz Awards: Best Jazz Keyboard of the Year and Best CD with Ranee Lee for their album Just You, Just Me
