JONES THRILLS IN LEWERS SHOW: Ulrich Krauer, general manager of the Halekulani, left, and Hawaii Pops Executive Director Donna Bebber talked with singer Jack Jones, center, pianist Matt Catingub and bassist Kevin Axt Nov. 15 after the second of four sold-out “Live at Lewers” shows at the Waikiki hotel. Jones, 74, had no problem hitting and holding the high notes, and he got an appreciative round of applause when he told the crowd that although his Grammy Award-winning hit “Wives and Lovers” is considered politically incorrect in some circles, he’ll sing it as long as his fans want to hear it.
