✨✧ Darius JonesMan'ish Boy – A Raw & Beautiful Thing ... CD
Aum Fidelity, 2009. Used ... $8.99
Raw trio jazz from Darius Jones – who has this invigorating, just rough enough tone on alto sax that's pretty wonderful! His trio includes Rakalam Bob Moses on drums and Cooper-Moore on piano and diddley-bo. The set blends free jazz expression with some bluesier touches very impressively. Excellent, unpredictable and fresh. Titles include "Roosevelt", "Cry Out", "We Are Unicorns", "Meekness", "Salty", "Chasing The Ghost", "Big Train Rollin" and "Forgive Me". CD

Darius Jones & The Elizabeth Caroline UnitOversoul Manual ... CD
Aum Fidelity, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 15.99
One of the most unusual projects we've ever heard from Darius Jones – so much so that the record doesn't feature the instrumentalist at all – just his own ideas and compositions performed by a very unique vocal quartet! The album is dedicated to all the singers who've influenced Jones over the years – from Nina Simone to Leontyne Price, Andy Bey, and Betty Carter – but the compositions are way different than any of those references might make you expect, and are based around a created language for spiritual rituals from the planet Or'gen – with word shapes instead of actual lyrics, performed by a quartet of female singers with a very enigmatic sound! The work is far more experimental than straight jazz vocals, but still has a very haunting, captivating feel – and the 15 tracks on the album are all listed with a variety of different symbols in the notes.

✨✧ Eric RevisIn Memory Of Things Yet Seen ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Really beautiful work from bassist Eric Revis – an album of subtle soul and really deep feelings – with a quality that's much more classic than some of the more contemporary material that we usually hear from the Clean Feed label – almost in an older avant space with echoes of Ornette Coleman, or some of the Soul Note/Black Saint recordings of the members of the 70s loft jazz scene. The group here is really strongly balanced – rich horn lines from Bill McHenry on tenor and Darius Jones on alto – mixed with Revis ruminating work on bass, and some sublime drumming from Chad Taylor – a player we really love, but who seems to shine even more here than usual. Branford Marsalis makes a surprising guest appearance on two tracks – and titles include "Hits", "Unknown", "Somethin's Cookin", "If You're Lonesome Then You're Not Alone", and the multi-part "Tulpa Chronicles".
