Three long time masters of the improvised music world team up here for unpredictable but always inspiring forays into the world of creative improvised-music. The trio first performed as a unit in 2006 in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the concert was very special. It consisted of collective, leaderless, sound-explorations among three musicians whose ability to listen and respond shone forth during the concert.

Performing entirely improvised music, Jones Jones’ musical performances draw on all the individual musicians’ past experiences, and that somehow adds up, not necessarily to “more than the sum of the parts,” but definitely to something unique and very special that could only have happened within this particular trio configuration. The band performed in Europe in Moscow in 2009 during the Moscow Biennale, in June/July 2008 in Amsterdam and St Petersburg plus festivals in Lithuania and Latvia. Jones Jones also was featured at The 2008 Festival Of New American Music in Sacramento, California. A new CD release, the music taken from live recordings in St. Petersburg and Amsterdam concerts, is called “We All Feel the Same Way,” and it has been released by the Moscow label “SoLyd Records” in September 2009.

As a member of Rova Saxophone Quartet since 1997, Larry Ochs has made more than two-dozen CDs and 40 tours to Europe and Japan, including tours to the USSR in 1983 and 1989. He has recorded dozens of CDs with his other touring bands including the bands “Maybe Monday” with Fred Frith and Miya Masaoka, their most recent CD on Intakt called “Unsquare” ; “Larry Ochs Sax & Drumming Core,” which tours Europe in late 2009 and released a new CD in June 2009 called “ Stone Shift”; “Kihnoua,” featuring Korean singer Dohee Lee; and “What We Live,” a great trio with Lisle Ellis and Don Robinson that has been touring and recording since 1994.. He has performed with Kronos Quartet, John Zorn, Steve Lacy, Anthony Braxton, Nels Cline, John Lindberg, Scott Amendola, Andrew Cyrille, Butch Morris, George Lewis, Henry Kaiser, Wadada Leo Smith, Peggy Lee and many others. More info and musical samples:

Mark Dresser is an internationally acclaimed bass player, improviser, composer, and interdisciplinary collaborator. A major focus has been extending the sonic and musical possibilities of the double bass through the use of unconventional amplification. A chapter on his extended techniques for contrabass, "A Personal Pedagogy," appears in the book, ARCANA. He is documented in over one hundred recordings including nearly thirty CDs as a soloist, band-leader or co-leader. For eighteen years he lived and worked in New York City where he recorded and performed with some of the strongest personalities in contemporary music and jazz including nine years with Anthony Braxton. In 2001 he was nominated for a Grammy. He is Professor of Music at University of California, San Diego. He has also been a lecturer at Princeton University, faculty at the New School University, and Hampshire College. He is on the board of directors of the International Society of Bassists and the advisory board of International Society of Improvised Music.

Nat Hentoff (Wall Street Journal) describes Vladimir Tarasov as a master of decorative brushwork, “a drummer of rare subtlety and cunning, who takes sensual delight in the very touch of his extensive array of instruments, from finger chimes to cymbals.” From 1971 to 1986, Tarasov was a member of the well-known contemporary jazz trio – GTC/The Ganelin Trio. With the Trio and many other artists and orchestras he has recorded more than 100 records and CDs including numerous solo performances. He has written music for orchestras, film, and theatre: Staatstheater, Stuttgart – 1995, Majestic Theater at The Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York – 1995; Josef Nadj Centre Choreographique National Orleans, Orleans – 1998, 2004; Theatre Vidy-Lausanne, Meierhold Centre, Moskow – 2003, etc. Vladimir Tarasov has performed with such musicians as Andrew Cyrille, the Rova Saxophone Quartet, Anthony Braxton, Lauren Newton, Butch Morris, Thomas Stanko, Gyorgy Szabados, Masahiko Satoh, among others.
