Composer Ron Jones (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Family Guy) and his group The Expanded Influence Jazz Orchestra will be performing at Charlie O's Jazz Club at 8 p.m. this Sunday night (February 8th), at 13725 Victory Blvd in Van Nuys. The featured vocalist will be Family Guy's creator/star Seth McFarlane.Yay Ron Jones! I liked him from his TNG days, and was impressed with how he rebuilt his career after getting canned from that show. Family Guy is a strangely right job for him: he gets to do the action episodes, like whenever Peter gets attacked by the giant chicken or the one where Mini-Stewie attacks the sperm*. And when that happens, Jones's music is (as I've said before) like Jerry Goldsmith on crack. Not something you usually hear in sitcoms!
* Thank you, makers of Family Guy, for giving me the chance to write the line "Mini-Stewie attacks the sperm."
