Jones Jones ... lustiger Name für eine AllStar Band der amerikanischen Impro-Jazz Szene. Aufgenommen wurde das hervorragend klingende "Just Justice" unmittelbar bevor die Pandemie 2020 über die Welt hereingebrochen ist. Limitierte CD auf ESP-Disk.
Larry Ochs: tenor and sopranino saxophones; Vladimir Tarasov: drums, percussion; Mark Dresser: basses
Recorded January 16, 2020 by Andrew Munsey at Studio B, UC San Diego. Mastered by Myles Boisen at Headless Buddha Lab, Oakland CA. Produced by Larry Ochs. All tracks collectively improvised by Ochs, Tarasov, and Dresser. Cover art by Roberto Harrison.
Jones Jones is a funny name for an all-star band. To grant such distinctive musicians so anonymous, Google-proof a moniker is whimsical in the extreme. But, given its members’ long and distinguished work in the service of music, this group should not be taken lightly or treated as a lark. There is humor in their work but also gravitas and depth and magic.
Larry Ochs says, “The newest and I think Jones Jones’ best recording, sonically speaking, was specially recorded in-studio just before Covid struck in 2020 and features beautiful artwork by artist Roberto Harrison made specifically for the band.”
