Houston has newer and arguably nicer music venues than Jones Hall, but the building at 615 Louisiana has been offering one of the most satisfying concert experiences in town since opening in 1966. Jones is of course best known and most often employed as the home of the Houston Symphony, but has also recently hosted concerts by junkman bard Tom Waits, R&B sexmonger R. Kelly, Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder and even "The Power of Love" time-lords Huey Lewis & the News, among others.
Award-winning for both its architecture and its acoustics, and with several significant pieces of civic art on the premises, Jones is everything a world-class, big-city concert hall should be. CHRIS GRAY
