descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Lithuanian living legend Vladimir Tarasov (drums, percussion), master bassist Mark Dresser, and Larry Ochs join forces for their fourth recording since 2008, but their first recording made entirely in-studio. Mark Dresser's full arsenal of basses and electronic pickups were able to be employed in this recording made in 2020, just before Covid19 shut down UC San Diego's primo recording-studio as well as the rest of the university.

"Supergroup is old rock music terminology. I know no one in Jones Jones thinks of themselves in those terms. Nevertheless, each one of these musicians has been involved in critical groundbreaking music in important ensembles outside of double Jones. The interesting thing is if you mention the classic Anthony Braxton Quartet (Braxton, Crispell, Dresser, Hemingway), the Rova Saxophone Quartet (Ochs, Ackley, Raskin, Voigt) or the Ganelin Trio (Ganelin, Tarasov, Chekasin), despite the game-changing music produced by each of these bands, there's no guarantee that people today will make the connection. Pity, I can't stress enough just how groundbreaking those three early 1980's strands of history are to the development of the post-new wave of avant garde jazz today. Dresser, Ochs and Tarasov, otherwise known as 'Jones Jones', are no throw-back to past glories. They inhabit our millennium as contemporary Global nomads. They each have homes, they chose to travel." --- Steve Day in SandyBrownJazz.co.uk (review of The Moscow Improvisations)

Performing entirely improvised music, every Jones Jones musical performance adds up to something unique that could only have happened within this particular trio configuration. The band performed in Europe in June/July 2008 in Amsterdam, St Petersburg and festivals in Lithuania and Latvia. Jones Jones also was featured at The 2009 Festival of New American Music in Sacramento, California. The group then returned to Europe for the Moscow Bienniale in 2010, where its show was recorded live. That recording was released in late April 2016 by the CD label Not Two and is called The Moscow Improvisations. (A first CD entitled We All Feel the Same Way was produced by the Moscow label SoLyd in time for the trio's appearance during the 2010 Moscow Biennale)... USA shows and tours occurred between 2012 and 2016. The trio performed two concerts in Moscow in 2016. "A Jones in Time Saves Nine" - a recording of pieces performed in California in 2016 - released on No Business Records in 2018."-ESP
