Darius Jones Quartet

Thursday, October 25, 8 pm
UMass Old Chapel

Darius Jones is an extraordinarily gifted alto saxophonist and composer. Soul-power is at his foundation; forward-looking expression always at the core. “Jones’ playing is both searing and drenched in the gospel church, achingly delicate and bubbling with joy,” writes Clifford Allen. “He gets into areas that are almost impossible to describe, though the feeling is of a gentle roundness and liquid caress both incredibly pure and powerful." His quartet includes Sam Newsome, soprano saxophone; Cooper-Moore, keyboards and Chad Taylor, drums.
