Led Zeppelin bassist/multi-instrumentalist John Paul Jones is known for his insatiable appetite for new musical expressions, and his latest is no exception.

This week, Jones announced the Sons of Chipotle project, a collaboration with Finnish cellist Anssi Karttunen, known for his impeccable resume of work that has seen him perform with some of the world’s most renowned orchestras.

The two musicians will perform in Japan this weekend as their first-ever public performance. A message posted on Jones’ website reveals more:

Sons of Chipotle cover an uncommonly vast area of the musical map and both John Paul Jones and Anssi Karttunen are thrilled to be making their Japanese debut performance in September in Tokyo at the famous Pit Inn, Shinjuku on the 3rd and the 5th September.

It is incredibly rare to find two of the finest musicians in the world performing in such an intimate setting for what will be a series of remarkable concerts. Both musicians are known to be curious minds, always ready to learn and to discover. When they improvise, borders disappear, they are free to migrate beyond prejudices, across continents. In a world where walls are being built and people are told where they cannot go, Sons of Chipotle want music to be a place of openness.

There will be two performances per day at The Pit Inn featuring John Paul Jones on piano and electronics, with Anssi Karttunen on cello and electronics. Sons of Chipotle are deeply honoured to have two extraordinary guest artists join them on both days:

Otomo Yoshihide (Japan)
Jim O’Rourke (USA)

These performances are not to be missed!
