The Return of Tao Jones
Tao Jones was originally an off-shoot in name only of Paul’s old band Peace Jones. It was originally a back-line funk trio consisting of JD Smith (bass), Sean Mason (drums) and Paul DeCirce (the usual). They were the house band early on at Paul’s infamous “Open Can of Jam” series on Wednesday’s at the Bywater in 2018 or so.
Now Tao Jones is rebirthed with an inspired line-up of Paul DeCirce (taking over drums), J.D. Smith (bass), Ian Taylor (keys) & Alex Ball (guitar / violin).
The music is intended to be mostly instrumental hi-powered funk and jazz jams, focusing on the improvisational.
This will be their debut performance in this new line-up. Come hear some adventurous music with some of the Asheville music scene’s long-time performers.
