Darius Jones


Pure power rings through the metal of his alto sax, and the frenetics that invariably erupt are often grounded in something spiritual. That’s why some cite him as a blend of Albert Ayler and Arthur Blythe. Check last year’s Man’ish Boy—Jones has a way of piercing the air with his sound. There’s no way to take your ear from him once he’s got you in his crosshairs. This three-night affair finds him splitting sessions with both trio and quartet.
