Not since Phil Collins did it at Live Aid has a musician played concerts on both sides of the Atlantic in a single day*, but alto saxophonist Darius Jones will come close tonight when his trio performs live at Outpost 186 in Cambridge, MA on the same night BBC 3’s Jazz on 3 presents its set from this summer’s Vision Festival 14.

The group, which just wowed the audience at AUM Fidelity‘s all-star artist showcase at Abrons Arts Center on Thursday night, is celebrating the release of Jones’ long-awaited debut as a leader, Man’ish Boy (A Raw & Beautiful Thing).

Learn more about Jones, his work in this band with mentors Cooper-Moore and Rakalam Bob Moses, and the sources of his music in an extended interview with Jason Crane on last Friday’s episode of The Jazz Session.
