Jean Claude Jones was born in Sfax, Tunisia and moved to France as a young child. As a teen, he simultaneously taught himself to play lead and bass guitar. At the age of 17 he began working in professional pop music and jazz bands. In 1978 he moved to the US where he pursued formal music studies, graduating from the Berklee College of Music in Boston where he majored in jazz guitar. He continued his studies at the Music Institute of Technology in Los Angeles. In 1983 he emigrated to Israel where he became a key player in the newly developing jazz scene. After several years he made a definitive switch from bass guitar to double bass, and became involved in free improvised music. Over time he added electronics and computer-manipulated sounds to his musical arsenal. The driving force behind his work is "finding my space."

JC Jones is an esteemed music educator and served as chair of the Jazz Department at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance between 1996 and 2000. He has performed and recorded with many leading international and Israeli musicians, dancers, poets and vocal artists, including Stan Getz, Red Rodney Dave Liebman. Since the 1990s he has appeared with John Zorn, Anthony Coleman, Ned Rothenberg, Joey Baron, Marc Ribot, Ikue Mori, Mike Patton, Damon Smith, Joelle Leandre, Slava Ganelin, Steve Horenstein, Albert Beger, Arkady Gotesman, Avishai Cohen, Ariel Shibolet, Harold Rubin, Victoria Hanna, Josef Sprinzak, Amos Hetz, Anat Shamgar , Felix Ruckert, Dieter Hautkamp, Julyen Hamilton, Mark Dresser, Barre Phillips, Bert Turetzky, Irina Kalina Goudeva.

Daniel Hoffman, and descendant of a long line of Bessarabian furriers, was born and raised near Los Angeles. In June of 2005 he moved to Israel. He started his violin studies at the age of seven, and continued his studies in Western classical music until graduating from the Manhattan School of Music in New York, whereupon he quickly turned his attentions to Eastern European Jewish folk music and formed several klezmer bands in San Francisco. In 1992, he co-founded Davka trio (now a quartet) combining Ashkenazi Jewish music with jazz and Middle-Eastern music. Davka has released five CDs of original music, including four on the Tzadik label. He also founded the Klez-X (formerly the SF Klezmer Experience) and has developed a reputation as one of the foremost experts of the Yiddish violin style, recording and performing with the top players in the field.

 

Hoffman has received numerous composition grants, including from Meet The Composer and the NEA. He has written two new scores for the silent films “The Golem” and “Jewish Luck”. He is currently composing music for “David in Shadow and Light,” a new musical (with librettist Yehuda Hyman) based on the King David story. The musical will premiere at Theatre J in Washington DC in May of 2008.

 

In Israel he performs with J.C. Jones and Nory Jacoby in Between The Strings, a free music string trio, and in Trio Carpion, an Ashkenazi-roots trio performing Yiddish and Romanian vocal music and pre-war European klezmer.

 

Hoffman currently performs in the new Jerusalem Theater Company comedy “Are You Happy Yet?” His latest releases are Davka Live and a remix of the Klez-X Harbst disc, KLZXRMX.

Harold Rubin was born in South Africa on Friday 13th, May 1932. He studied classical clarinet from the age of 16, although his main interest was in jazz. At age 18 he started playing at the Skyline night club In Johanesburg with Dulcy Ryder, and formed his quartette, performing the music of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Benny Goodman. They also performed at the Odin Cinema in the ghetto Sophiatown, before it was bulldozed and the citizens moved to Sowetto.

Rubin emigrated to Israel in 1963, after being tried for blasphemy for an art work named "My Jesus."

At the end of 1979 he started playing again and in 1985 formed Zaviot with Mark Smulian, Reuven Hoch, and Tommy Belman, playing original music. The group achieved success in Israel and Europe. In 1989 he became interested in total improvised music and has been involved in the process of developing the music wherever it takes him. He performs with small groups and is a member of the Tel Aviv Art Ensemble.
He has performed in festivals in Sibiu, Rumania, Berlin and Leverkusen Germany and in Copenhagen. In 2000 he performed at the Brooklyn Music Academy with Daniel Sarid and in
