Alpha is the Debut album from forward - looking Jazz Quartet the Jones O'Connor Group. Their aesthetic is shaped by collective improvisation, creating impressive textures through deeply intuitive group chemistry. Compelling originals explore new forms, reflecting eclectic influences such as Post Rock, Minimalism and Free Jazz, while elegant ballads and fiery up-tempo grooves provide an abstract framework for dynamic and inventive playing.

The Jones O'Connor Group - Paul Jones (Piano, Fender Rhodes), Richard Jones (Guitars) Chris O'Connor (Bass) and Mark O'Connor (Drums)

 

Reviews

 

01/01/2005 Cardiff University

‘Without doubt one of the most exciting bands on the Welsh music scene today, displaying influences from the best of the forward-looking contemporary European jazz groups such as the Cinematic Orchestra. Boasting hugely inventive and compelling originals, and capable of thoroughly dynamic and driven collective performance, the band were very well received at this year's Brecon Jazz Festival and are sure to be making waves nationally in the near future’ –
