Back in the late 1970s – early 80s, the late Busta “Cherry” Jones was a first call session cat / side-man, plying funk fueled lines with a mastery of rhythm, space, harmony – rendered with fat P bass tone. A showman, composer, solo recording artist, and collaborator; Mr. Jones distinguished himself on several seminal sides of his era including My Life in the Bush of Ghosts (1981) and The Name of this Band is Talking Heads (1982), among others. He followed Andy Fraser in Sharks, anchored a killer live trio platter with Chris Spedding (Friday the 13th); and worked with Gang of Four, Eno, Robert Fripp, and The Ramones, to cite a select few.
