He may have formed part of one of the biggest rock bands of all time, but John Paul Jones has never let go of his session musician roots.
This latest collaboration sees JPJ supplying twinkling mandolin to Oslo ingénue Susanna’s (formerly of Susanna & The Magical Orchestra) We Offer – a blissfully baroque track indebted to Court and Spark-era Joni Mitchell and performed here for Norwegian Streaming Service WiMP.
Recorded in August at Norway’s Øya Festival, this clip also features Helge Sten – head honcho of experimental jazz collective Supersilent – on guitar (JPJ was at the festival to perform with the group).
John Paul Jones’ appearance follows his recent work with Them Crooked Vultures, Minibus Pimps, Robyn Hitchcock and Seasick Steve.
Susanna And Ensemble neoN’s The Forester is out on November 25.
