about

A loving tribute to the spoken and sung word, the first half of the album features vocalist Candace Jones on Jessica’s original songs ranging from intimate ballad to a 6/8 band stretch out free for all. The second half, “side B,” features poets Arisa White and Abe Maneri performing their poetry to original music from the band, culminating in a completely free improvisation by the band and the poets, playing off each other, riffing and building on what they hear.

The band features several Joneses, including Jessica & Tony on saxophone throughout, Candace on vocals and bassist Levi on one song. Cover art is by George Jones.
Several stellar musicians add to the date, including drummer Lou Grassi and bassist/saxophonist Dayna Stephens on “side A,” drummer Kenny Wollesen and bassist Ken Filiano on “side B.”
