The Intimate Worldbuilding of Darius Jones 

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

A solo album is one of the most personal statements a jazz musician can make. They can be documentations of technical achievement, or a means to get compositions down on tape and hopefully inspire others to record them later; they can be sonic experiments, using the space in which they’re recorded as an instrument; or they can be heartfelt performances of beloved tunes. With nobody else around, they’re more than anything a confrontation between the artist and the audience, or between the artist and themselves. Alto saxophonist Darius Jones’s Raw Demoon Alchemy (A Lone Operation) is all of these things and more.
