John Paul Jones’s Zooma

After years of keeping a low profile with production and soundtrack work, John Paul Jones released his first solo album in September 1999. An instrumental album, it has a range of styles and influences that reveal just how much of an influence Jones had on Led Zeppelin – most notably the later Led Zeppelin albums that branched out from their blues-rock foundation. Solo, Jones worked more like a jazz musician, picking instrumental themes to search and build upon (which included using the London Symphony Orchestra), as opposed to the more immediate, visceral riff-based approach that defined his previous band’s music.
