A powerhouse saxophonist with an unusually focused perspective, Jones seems to conjure holy ghosts and prodigal sons with every solo. His full-bodied sound is shaped as much by deep soul as by dirty funk, as he pushes the horn at both ends of its scale. Here Jones performs a politically-informed program on the eve of the November midterm elections, examining American history in the context of power and violence throughout a collection of different compositions.
