It's a shame he didn't make it Down Under.

Zooma and The Thunderthief would've been great live.

Do you know if he had any plans to tour Oz and NZ?

Have never heard of nor seen anything to suggest he intended to tour Oz and NZ. Robert Fripp was putting together a 2001 JPJ/Jeff Beck/King Crimson package tour

but Jeff dropped out of it shortly before it was to be announced. JPJ and King

Crimson went on to play a few dates in North America.

Steve, what did JPJ do if anything between 1980 and 87. I know he worked with Cinderella and Buthole Surfers as well as the Scream for help soundtrack. Is there anything more that you know about?

In 1980 he produced a single for the Eastbourne-based rock group Lamella. Not

sure if that was before or after 9/25/80. His more high-profile projects are listed

in the biography on his site.

Thanks, dazedjeffy. It's very time consuming to research each gig so I appreciate the contributions made here. My original post can't be amended but bear in mind the main

database will be updated to reflect them.

Largo

Los Angeles, CA

February 7, 2008

Found this review in the 5/19/08 issue of The New Yorker:

The following Thursday, Tench was back at Largo, playing with Sara, Sean, Greg Leisz (pedal steel), and Gabe Wicher (fiddle), to a crowd of about sixty-five. They played some Watkins songs, and one by Tom Brosseau, a sweet, off-kilter singer-songwriter from North Dakota, who is Flanagan's tennis partner and often plays at Largo.

After a bit, Sara said, "If Jon B. wants to come up and play with us on this song, he should." From the back of the room, a tall, loping figure in a leather jacket, with thick dark hair and lively eyes set in a pale face, made his way across the floor, carrying a guitar: it was Jon Brion, a virtuosic musician, producer, and composer, who has had an always-sold-out show at Largo for a dozen years.

Then Sara invited up another John--"lot of Johns tonight," she said--and it was John Paul Jones, the bassist from Led Zeppelin. There were whispers in the surprised audience. ("There was no way I was going to announce this," Flanagan said to me.)

They played a John Hartford bluegrass song, with Jones on bass and Brion on a nineteen-fifties Gretsch. Jones, fine featured and distinguished-looking, smiled mildly as he played. When the song was over, another musician walked onto the stage: the session drummer Jim Keltner (Dylan, Lennon, Harrison, Clapton, Floyd). He sat down at the drum kit and

put on a pair of dark glasses. Jones picked up his mandolin, and the group played an instrumental version of the Zeppelin song "Going to California." Keltner leaned back and cast his arm tenderly, like a fisherman. Jones held his mandolin snug to his chest, as if it were a wiggly baby and he had to concentrate to button up its coat. He was blushing

with pleasure by the end.

"Nice boyfriends," Flanagan said to Sara when the show was over and the audience was reluctantly drifting out.

"That was the most ridiculous band," Brion said. "You couldn't hire that band, you couldn't afford that band, you couldn't get them together. By all accounts it shouldn't have happened."

Keltner went home; so did Jones. The others sat around till well past midnight, taking turns on Jones's mandolin, which he had left behind.

John Cage was a little bit dead by 2004

That would explain any lackluster reviews of his performance.

I find only one 1980 release by Lamella ("Wasting Your Time" b/w "When Julie Dances", Direct DO B1), but the credited producer was David Satchell. Do you have any more info?

1991

01.18 London, England Queen Elizabeth Hall

Note: Joins joins vocal renaissance group Red Byrd to perform Jones' composition 'Amores Pasodas'. Jones plays lute, harpsichord and vihuela

At that time i read new a report that Mr.Jones was producing a double CD album with his own classical compositions.

so there was some truth about back then. i wonder why it was never released somewhere ?

1992

07.?? Seville, Spain World's Fair

Note: Jones is musical director for a one-hour showcase of technology and art titled Memory Palace; featured 'Liquid Selves' by Karl Sims

This went on some kind of tour in europe with the La Fura Dels Baus artist performer group from spain,

then funded by Mercedes Benz. i remember seeing this great performance for free on a big open air space in Berlin then (1993?), but i have no knowledge if JPJ toured with the group who were multimedia artists working with their bodies, fire & flame throwing, self built cars, wild masks - generally quite avantgarde in a shocking mad max kind of scenario. and there was kind of a band that were playing mostly wild, industrial music. quite amazing then, again i have no idea why the music never was made available, not even at the performance.

It's my understanding John's direct involvement was limited to being musical director for the showcase in Seville.

In 2001, Image Entertainment released a dvd - 'Odyssey - The Mind's Eye Presents Computer Animation Experience' (ID0936ODDVD) and it includes 'Liquid Selves', an animation short produced by John Paul Jones for the World Expo in Seville, Spain 1992). I have this and I believe they can still be purchased online from Image

Entertainment or Amazon.com, etc.

My reference notes show "Jones produces a single for Eastbourne-based rock group Lamella" was reported in the August 1981 issue of 'Tight But Loose', the Led Zeppelin fanzine published by Dave Lewis. Let's ask him.

This short computer animation depicts the upcoming struggle between the virtual and physical sides of our selves, where our bodies are left behind as technology enhances our ability to exist in virtual worlds.

A collection of techniques were used to produce this animation. Particle systems were used to disassemble and reconstruct various images. Artificial evolution and interpolation of 3D parametric shapes allowed the creation of unusual surface transformations. Morphing techniques produced smooth transitions between faces, and various image processing, warping, and compositing techniques were also employed.

Software and Animation by Karl Sims

Music by Peter Gabriel and John Paul Jones

Thanks to Lew Tucker, Jim Salem, Gary Oberbrunner, Matt Fitzgibbon, Dave Sheppard, David Marvit, Kleiser-Walczak, and Keith Waters

Produced for "Memory Palace" and Art Futura '92

This piece was rendered on a Connection Machine CM-2 computer.

Merci for clearing that up, Swandon.

i believe this could be interesting to listen to as it is a 3 piece, 15 minute suite or something:

John Paul Jones - Amores Passados

Al son de los arroyuelos [4:57]

No Dormio [6:06]

So elle encina [4:33]

Review (by Stuart Maconie in NME 26 January 1991

Similarly, vocal duo Red Byrd's collection wilfully mixes the haunting formality of 16th Century Italy with uncharacteristically lovely settings of poems by Led Zep's John Paul Jones! Unfortunately for Red Byrd, it's the use of modern guitar and bass that really catch the attention, particularly in the twisted, fractured textures of Frank Martin's'Trois Poems' (8).

Isn´t it a bit curious that JPJ seems to lead a secret and not well documented life as Choir Master sometimes?!
