A producer, composer, singer, and recording artist, Wornell “Sonic Prince” Jones has been a busy session cat and sideman in the USA – and most recently Japan – for five decades and counting.

A James Jamerson / Ron Carter disciple, Wornell’s career spans Bobby Parker, Eddie Kendricks, Sly Stone, Koko Taylor, Patrick Moraz, Maria Muldaur, Earth Wind & Fire, Ramsey Lewis and the Pointer Sisters, to cite a few.

Erudite rockers know him best for his work with Nils Lofgren wherein Jones afforded the acclaimed guitarist soulful grooves aplenty on such seminal sides as Nils Lofgren (1975), Cry Tough (1976), I Came to Dance (1977), and the live set Night After Night (1978).
