Darryl Jones


Darryl Jones was born on the south side of Chicago into a musical family. His father taught him drums and xylophone at 7 years old. But when Jones saw his neighbor, Angus Thomas, playing bass in the school talent show, the nine year old foresaw his destiny. He immediately began studying with Angus, and within a year played his first gig, along with his brother on guitar, at the next school talent show. After completing the intensive music program at Chicago Vocational High School he attended Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.


With the support of caring parents who instilled a strong work ethic, Jones gained entry to the Chicago music scene playing alongside other Chicago locals including Vincent Wilburn, Jr., Matthew Rose, and Perry Wilson. His reputation for passionately serving the function of the music got people talking. They played gigs around Chicago for the likes of Ghallib Ghallab, Otis Clay, Ken Chaney, and Phil Upchurch. At 21, with the help of his longtime friend Vincent Wilburn Jr. (the nephew of Miles Davis), Jones landed a life-changing gig with the legendary jazz icon, with whom he would record and tour over the next five years. He can be heard on Decoy, You’re Under Arrest, and several live concert albums.

Notwithstanding the almost clockwork regularity of archival releases (with and without bonus material), upon quick reflection, the Rolling Stones and the Grateful Dead would not appear to have much in common. But some concentrated contemplation reveals how many traits these bands actually share and that's even apart from their remarkable longevity. With sixty-plus years and counting ...

Miles Davis: The Bootleg Series Vol. 7 That's What Happened 1982-1985

Read "The Bootleg Series Vol. 7 That's What Happened 1982-1985" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Eventually the steam roller that is the Miles Davis Bootleg Series was going to trundle into the trumpeter's 1980s comeback era. The preceding six volumes in this series have all been uniformly excellent--essential listening for the Davis completist. Volume 7, however, does not reach those heights. It is an uneven bag, much like Davis's 1980s output ...
