Darius Jones has created a recognizable voice as a saxophonist and composer by embracing individuality and innovation in the tradition of African-American music. With NYC as his base, Jones has toured around the United States, Canada and Europe. Jones was one of Jazz Times’ Debut Artists of the Year for 2009 and was featured in the Wall Street Journal in 2011, and in ‘DownBeat’ in 2012. Jones’ 2012 release, Book of Mæ’bul (Another Kind of Sunrise) was listed among NPR’s Best Top 10 Jazz Albums of that year. Critics have called him “robustly creative” (Nate Chinen, NYT) and “one of NYC’s most incisive and passionate saxists” (Time Out).
In May 2020, Arts for Art introduced the On_Line Salon series to provide performance opportunities for our artists who lost all in-person gigs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, we’ve presented over 45 performances featuring 100 artists. Performances stream every Tuesday and Thursday. See the full schedule at https://www.artsforart.org/onlinesalon.
Arts for Art is dedicated to the exceptional creativity that originated in the African American multi-arts jazz culture that utilizes improvisation to express a larger, more positive dream of inclusion and freedom.
