JESSICA JONES QUARTET
The Jessica Jones Quartet is an improvising jazz ensemble that performs inventive experimental music derived from the jazz tradition using structured original compositions as a framework for freer improvisation.
By combining the twin tenor saxophones of Jessica and Tony Jones with bass and drums, the group creates an exciting, robust new soundscape.
Following the acclaimed album MOXIE (2015), Jessica puts the band together again with the latest release CONTINUUM (2019). Featuring the innovative and energetic rhythm section of drummer Kenny Wollesen and bassist Stomu Takeishi, who are original members of the band from the 1980’s, the album embodies her approach to jazz as a seamless flow passed between players. From lustrous ballads to free improvs, from Thelonious Monk to Billy Eckstine, Continuum captures the frisson of a creative community exploring and listening together.
