Give it your all
by Eric Harabadian
Jean Claude Jones is a true representative of the artistic and improvisational spirit of the independent jazz musician.
He has made his mark on the world as first-call bassist, composer, educator, bandleader, recording engineer/producer and record label owner. And he's accomplished it all against incredible odds.

All About Jazz
When you first come across the recordings on Kadima Collective, a couple
of things stand out. The first is that the label, devoted to free improvisation,
is based in Israel; secondly, there's a good chance that the CD will
feature a bassist, often one of substantial international stature,
like Barre Phillips, Mark Dresser or Joëlle Léandre.
Those distinguishing marks can be traced to the founder of both the Kadima
Collective and the eponymous label, Jean-Claude Jones, a bassist of the
first rank himself. Born in Tunisia and raised in France, Jones is a
Berklee College graduate who immigrated to Israel in 1983.
|Bertram Turetzky: Contrabass Pioneer
by Robert Bush
All About Jazz
|Contrabassist Bertram Turetzky's career is nothing short of extraordinary. He
almost single handedly redefined the role of the bass in 20th Century
classical music, from one of back row support to that of featured and
celebrated soloist. Even within the confines of classical music, Turetzky's
range is huge: he is a master of early, pre- Bach music; a noted performer
of chamber music; a veteran of symphonic ensembles; and he's played
everything from Brahms and Strauss to 20th Century mavericks like John
Cage and Edgard Varese.
