AUM Fidelity presents two world-renowned jazz masters and our extraordinarily gifted latest signing in a one-night-only showcase at the Abrons Arts Center main performance space – a beautiful, intimate and mighty comfortable 300+ seat theater in the heart of the Lower East Side of Manhattan. We are very excited about this rare AUM live production and aim to sell the house out; we hope that you will be able to join us for this night of sure-to-be profoundly beautiful and transformative music.
DAVID S. WARE
Eminent saxophonist David S. Ware makes his triumphant return to the stage following his very successful kidney transplant in May. His latest studio recording, Shakti, was released to great acclaim in January. This year of 2009 also marks Ware's 50th year of playing saxophone, having begun his remarkable journey into music very early on. He will be marking this doubly auspicious occasion by presenting a very special solo performance on tenor and two less well known members of the saxophone family: the saxello and the stritch. He will have a lot .to say though his horns on this night, people!
DARIUS JONES TRIO
Darius Jones is an extraordinarily gifted young alto saxophonist & composer who has made great beauty of his time since arriving in NYC in 2005 from his native Virginia, playing with musicians from a wide variety of disciplines, and adding gravitas to all groups concerned. On this night, he will be celebrating the October 13 release of his debut album as a leader, Man’ish Boy (A Raw & Beautiful Thing). The performance will feature Darius Jones: alto sax, Cooper-Moore: piano & diddley-bo & Jason Nazary: drums.
