A powerhouse saxophonist with an unusually focused perspective, Darius Jones laces his urgent avant-jazz vision with deep soul and dirty funk. Tonight Jones looks back to his 2009 debut, Man'ish Boy (A Raw & Beautiful Thing), as he heads up a trio with pianist Cooper-Moore (who appeared on the record) and drummer Jason Nazary. Also on the bill is a quartet led by San Francisco bassist-composer Lisa Mezzacappa, whose work demonstrates an admirable balance of grit and whimsy.
