SATURDAY, OCTOBER 23 RAINIER VALLEY CULTURAL CENTER, 8PM
Darius Jones Trio
$12 general, $10 members/seniors, $6 students BUY NOW

Darius JonesThis performance, featuring stand-out alto saxophonist, composer, and producer Darius Jones will likely channel the great Fred Anderson, whose Rainier Valley performance of a few years ago was one for the ages. Jones plays future-defining jazz with bassist Adam Lane and drummer Ryan Sawyer. Jones, who was recently nominated for Up & Coming Artist of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association has been described by the New York Times as “fearless but disciplined” and “a skilled composer, a hugely soulful saxophonist, and an assured leader” (François Couture, AllMusic.com).

He joined the New York music community in 2005, after living and studying in Richmond, Virginia. Jones comes from a diverse musical background that has led to his unique, alternative, and soulful approach to music. Jones has composed and performed in a wide variety of areas such as electro-acoustic music, chamber ensembles, contemporary jazz groups, avant-garde jazz groups, modern dance performances, and multi-media events. Jones has performed in Italy, France, U.S. and Canada. He is the recent winner of the Van Lier Fellowship awarded by Roulette.

Jones is a rising star on the international scene thanks to the success of two recent AUM Fidelity releases, his 2009 debut, Man’ish Boy (A Raw & Beautful Thing) and Little Women‘s first full-length recording, Throat.
