Live recordings of JC Jones in duo settings, 14 different collaborations. "Israeli bass player Jean-Claude Jones—born in Tunisia, raised in France, and educated at Berklee in Boston - is one of the dedicated forerunners of the small community of free jazz players in Israel. In the last years his activity focused on intimate improvised encounters with local kindred souls—musicians, poets, vocal artists, and dancers, very often in duos, in the same manner as the late great bass player Peter Kowald did along the years."-Eyal Hareuveni

Artist Biographies:

"Jean Claude Jones was born in Sfax, Tunisia and moved to France as a young child. As a teen, he Jean Claude (JC) Jones was born in Sfax, Tunisia, and moved to France as a young child. As a teen, he taught himself simultaneously to play lead and bass guitar.

At the age of 17 he began working in professional pop and jazz bands. In 1978 he moved to the US to pursue formal music studies, graduating from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he majored in jazz guitar. He continued his studies at the Music Institute of Technology in Los Angeles. In 1983 he emigrated to Israel, where he became a key player on the newly developing jazz scene. Several years later he made a definitive switch from guitar to double bass, and became involved in free improvised music. In time, he added electronics and computer-manipulated sounds to his musical arsenal. In 2016 he returned the guitar as his main instrument.

The driving force behind his work is "finding my space."

JC Jones is an esteemed music educator, and served as chair of the Jazz Department at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance between 1996 and 2000. He has performed and recorded with many leading international and Israeli musicians, dancers, poets, and vocal artists, including Stan Getz, Red Rodney, and Dave Liebman. Since the 1990s he has appeared with John Zorn, Anthony Coleman, Ned Rothenberg, Joey Baron, Marc Ribot, Ikue Mori, Mike Patton, Damon Smith, Joelle Leandre, Slava Ganelin, Steve Horenstein, Albert Beger, Arkady Gotesman, Avishai Cohen, Ariel Shibolet, Harold Rubin, Victoria Hanna, Josef Sprinzak, Amos Hetz, Anat Shamgar , Felix Ruckert, Dieter Hautkamp, Julyen Hamilton, Mark Dresser, Barre Phillips, Bert Turetzky, Irina Kalina Goudeva, Raymond Boni, Raphael Saint-Remy, and Denis Fournier.

Some of JC's major projects include Deep Tones for Peace performances, the Kadima Triptych Series (cds/dvds/texts featuring double-bass masters), Myelination (the myelin chemical sounds and improvised music), and The Temperamental Duo, a collaborative work on Lydian + Explorations with composer/reeds player Steve Horenstein.

Since 2016 he has been working with prepared acoustic guitar, in multiple collaborations and recordings with several eminent musicians. Ongoing works includes Keep on Dancing, duos recordings with percussionists Haim Peskoff, Haggai Fershtman, Omri Mor, Denis Fournier, and JC on prepared acoustic lap-style guitar, Sick Puppies In Love duos with vocalist Anat Pick, and guitars duo recordings with Raymond Boni."

"Composer/Performer Ned Rothenberg has been internationally acclaimed for both his solo and ensemble music, presented for the past 33 years on 5 continents. He performs primarily on alto saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, and the shakuhachi - an endblown Japanese bamboo flute. His solo work utilizes an expanded palette of sonic language, creating a kind of personal idiom all its own. In an ensemble setting, he leads the trio Sync, with Jerome Harris, guitars and Samir Chatterjee, tabla, works with the Mivos string quartet playing his Quintet for Clarinet and Strings and collaborates around the world with fellow improvisors. Recent recordings include this Quintet, The World of Odd Harmonics, Ryu Nashi (new music for shakuhachi), and Inner Diaspora, all on John Zorn's Tzadik label, as well as Live at Roulette with Evan Parker, and The Fell Clutch, on Rothenberg's Animul label."
