John Paul Jones


John Paul Jones by Keith Oxman

“John Paul Jones” is a track from tenor saxophonist and educator Keith Oxman’s album This One’s for Joey, out April 15, 2022 via Capri Records. In addition to being a world-renowned saxophonist and composer, Keith Oxman has been teaching at Denver’s East High School’s music department for over 25 years. When he learned that one of his former students, bassist Joey Pearlman, had passed away in February 2021 at the age of 24, Oxman decided to pay tribute to the brilliant young man who’d already earned a place as a first-call musician on the New York scene. The result is This One’s for Joey, featuring Oxman’s quartet with pianist Jeff Jenkins, bassist Mark Simon and drummer Todd Reid. Bassist Joey and his twin brother Stevie on drums are featured with Oxman on the Coltrane standard “John Paul Jones,” recorded in June 2014 when the twins were 17.
