DARIUS JONES Quartet ..Book of Mæ’bul (Another Kind of Sunrise)
“Mæ’bul is the embodiment of every woman I have truly loved and had a relationship with in my life,” Jones explains
“Book of Mæ’bul (Another Kind of Sunrise) elevates Darius’ estimable work as composer and bandleader to a new level of creative magnitude. Sublime melodies, purposefully juxtaposed meters, love, and beauty map the exquisitely detailed yet fluid movement of the music. Music that has been purposefully designed to embrace the listener,” www.aumfidelity.com.

DARIUS JONES Trio ..Big Gurl (Smell My Dream)
“[Jones] seems to have the ability to take in a fair percentage of jazz history at a hell of a rate and come out with something of his own as a result, and that’s an enviable skill. When the passion builds, it does so collectively, the three men musically moving with a staggering unity of purpose.”–Nic Jones, AllAboutJazz.com
