Liverpool-born Edgar Jones made his mark in the early ’90s as the leader of the highly regarded ’60s revivalists The Stairs, then transitioned into a sideman with artists such as Paul Weller and Saint Etienne. He also launched a solo career under various names and group settings that swerved from reverb-heavy garage rock and swaggering blues-rock to off-kilter ’60s-inspired pop and even swinging jazz.

His lounge jazz album from 2005 Soothing Music for Stray Cats won plaudits from Noel Gallagher and he won the sponsorship of The Coral, who issued his 2017 album The Song of Day and Night on their Skeleton Key label. No matter the sound or name of the group, Jones could be counted on to deliver breezy pop music, anchored by his languorous vocals and skilful musicianship.
