Alan Jones is a traditional Jazz musician and a founder member of the Adamant Jazz band, a New Orleans style Traditional Jazz band.

Cardiff was prone to flooding and I remember once I was playing at a place on Cathedral Road we started the gig at about 8pm and whilst we playing we could see all these blue flashing lights outside. By the time we finished at about 11pm half of Cathedral Road was flooded and we had to beat a hasty retreat up the road.
There was also another place called the Inn On The River that one night we just couldn't get down to because all the centre of town as flooded. We had to go down Penarth Road and get to it from the docks end.
