From 5049 Records:

Darius Jones is a saxophonist with a big sound and a big heart. He came by on a blazing hot day in August and we sat down to discuss, among other things, his upbringing in Virginia, awakening ones humanity, what he’s learned from the great Cooper-Moore and the film “Drive”. This is a good talk with a creative guy who is pushing himself to make soulful and authentic music.
