Jonas acquired his love for singing and performing from his father who sang and played saxophone with big bands in the 1930’s and 40’s. Although he grew up listening to jazz greats like Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, and the “Chairman of the Board” himself, Jonas spent the first several decades of his life composing, performing, and recording blues (his first band was called Stronger Than Dirt), folk, and rock and roll. In the late 1990’s he began transitioning to jazz, eventually picking up his dad's sax and founding the Jonas Magram Jazz Quintet. These days, Jonas performs regularly with Steve as half of their jazz duo.
