Tenor saxophonist Jessica Jones anchors two intimate duet sets: the first with pianist Connie Crothers and the second with pianist/saxophonist Peter Apfelbaum. Bay Area natives now ensconced in Brooklyn's creative music scene, the three are certified originals performing their own compositions as well as imaginative interpretations of jazz standards.
Jessica and her huband Tony Jones have collaborated for the last 20 years in her own quartet. In addition, Jessica has worked with Joseph Jarman, Cecil Taylor, Don Cherry, and a variety of Haitian, Caribbean and African bands.
