It’s not hyperbole to say that Oliver Jones is one of only a handful of musicians who can be called Canada’s greatest.

Growing up in the Little Burgundy neighbourhood of Montreal, Jones was born to make music. An 11-time Juno nominee and two-time winner, Jones has recorded 23 albums as a leader; he’s a Governor General’s Arts Award winner; he’s an Officer of the Order of Canada; and on Thursday night, he’ll be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

It was an absolute pleasure to welcome Jones for a conversation.
