Darius Jones in Solo Performance- Tuesday March 13 8pm/ Chapel Performance Space

Since his arrival in New York in 2005, alto saxophonist Darius Jones has established himself as an expressive voice residing on the edge of multiple aspects of the jazz tradition. Though Jones doesn’t see himself as a “free” jazz musician along the lines of Albert Ayler, or as a traditionalist such as Johnny Hodges, he cites both as sources of inspiration. In solo performance, Jones leaves us a musical trail blazed by perceived diametric opposites that in reality, represent reflective images of the same.https://www.earshot.org/project/darius-jones-march2018/
