by Alan Jones Sextet

Alan Jones likes to dive off cliffs into the water, timing the waves just right to survive the plunge. He'll do a flip too, just to give it style. Risky leaps with style: That's this music. That sense of graceful adventure is what "UNSAFE" is all about.

Album Notes
Led by extraordinary drummer/composer Alan Jones who built his own drums and plays barefoot - this Sextet is NOT just another jazz group. While firmly rooted in tradition, their music is so fresh and exciting that it has managed to catch the attention of purists as well as a whole generation of younger fans who usually ignore anything resembling mainstream jazz.

These veteran musicians, John Gross (tenor sax), Warren Rand (alto sax), Paul Mazzio (trumpet), Randy Porter (piano), Dan Schulte (bass), and Alan Jones (drums) play their lives on their instruments. It is rare to hear such unbridled honesty. These artists have made an unwavering commitment to speak their truth with no boundaries, no restrictions, and with no fears.

Unpredictable improvisations are framed here by lush melodic passages set in narrative compositions. It's free, but with elastic grooves that offer the romance of risk without complete disorientation. The arrangements are startling, the voicings unique.

"Unsafe" was produced and recorded by the great Gino Vannelli who gave us such pop hits as "I just wanna stop" and "brother to brother". His uncompromising dedication to sound quality show in the mood and style of this beautifully recorded CD.

With the CD Unsafe and its elaborate, accessible pieces [The Alan Jones Sextet] is ready to take its place among the most interesting acoustic jazz ensembles in the country.
