Kind greetings good people on the AUM Fidelity Community list,

Over the last few years, a number of folks have been asking me: "what is Darius Jones up to? when is there a new album coming?"  To which I always answer, he's been up to LIFE.  And that he's been writing and woodshedding and planning and active on all fronts. (Especially) if you live on the East Coast US, there have been numerous opportunities in the past year to catch his essence live. And now, am stoked to alert you to this imminent Canadian tour and more!



Darius Jones Quartet feat. Emilie Lesbros
September 2018 Canadian Tour 
+ Duo w/ Amirtha Kidambi 
+ Solo Sax in San Francisco
(his Bay Area debut!)

+ Darius Jones: For The People 
November 5, 2018 @ Roulette, Brooklyn


Full details & ticket links for all performances follow..



The extraordinarily gifted alto saxophonist, composer & bandleader, Darius Jones, will be embarking on his second tour of Canada in September 2018. It will be in the company of the Quartet feat. singer Emilie Lesbros with which he created the exceptional album, Le bébé de Brigitte (Lost in Translation). This is the first time that Darius has presented this work live outside of the East Coast; an opportunity to relish! 

"With this new collaboration, Darius Jones cements his position as a brilliant, model jazz musician in the new century." –PopMatters

"Witty, soulful and brimming with invention, an inspired marriage of creative music and song." –The Wire

"With each new recording we're seeing another facet of a magnificently gifted musician." –DownBeat 

"Jones' playing and composing may have some of the mercurial energy associated with the avant-garde but the communicative immediacy of African-American folk traditions stands like a bedrock in his work. Like all players that matter, Jones brings a lived-in, wizened quality to his performances, as if he knows something not just of black diasporan musical traditions but of the lives behind them." –Jazzwise


The Quartet Canadian tour opens with a Duo performance w/ Amirtha Kidambi (Elder Ones & Elizabeth-Caroline Unit - The Oversoul Manual) -&- will be capped with a solo saxophone performance in Berkeley, CA in Darius' SF Bay area debut!
