Performer's Website

Darius Jones came to New York from his native Virginia in 2005 and has since displayed his distinctive sound and composing style in a wide variety of genres.

Pianist/composer Matthew Shipp writes, “He is one of those rare talents that when you first hear him you scratch your head, because it’s all there—the concept, the virtuosity, a real improvisational mind. I feel really good about the future of this music knowing that a real and pure talent like Darius exists.”

In addition to his working trio with bassist Adam Lane and drummer Jason Nazary, which appears on Ma’ish Boy as a special bonus track, Jones actively performs with Lewis Barnes’ Hampton Roads, the Cooper-Moore Trio, William Hooker’s Bliss (East), Little Women, Mike Pride’s From Bacteria to Boys and Mara Rosenbloom’s Arrival Quartet.

He is also a teacher and producer of records by Korean jazz vocalist Sunny Kim and country-folk artist Mary Bragg.
