“…The most visceral and distinctive alto saxophonist of this era.” 
-The New York Times

In anticipation of releasing his new solo-album, Raw Demoon Alchemy (A Lone Operation), jazz saxophonist Darius Jones will fill Green-Wood’s Catacombs with the anxiety, frustration, and hope of life in the wake of global pandemic. Influenced by the titans of music, both past and present, he handpicked compositions from Sun Ra, Ornette Coleman, Roscoe Mitchell, and Georgia Anne Muldrow to unpack the vulnerability of our time. As Jones explains:  “I want to capture a moment in time, to crystallize the beginning of something at the end of something else.” 

Raw Demoon Alchemy (A Lone Operation) will be released on November 5th, though concert attendees will have the exclusive opportunity to purchase the album after the performance.
