Music

Darius Jones

by

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.
