"AUM Fidelity kicks off its 15th anniversary year by releasing alto saxophonist/composer Darius Jones' Book of Mae'bul (Another Kind of Sunrise), the third verse in his ongoing Man'ish Boy epic. This recording, featuring Jones' quartet with pianist Matt Mitchell, bassist Trevor Dunn and drummer Ches Smith, introduces a new titular character, Mae'bul, to the universe he is creating in close collaboration with graphic artist Randal Wilcox. Book of Mae'bul (Another Kind of Sunrise) elevates Darius' estimable work as composer and bandleader to another level of creative magnitude. It is his first Quartet release, and once again features a stunning new book of compositions written specifically for the project. The band consists of highly talented generational peers, each of whom give forth their finest in this group. Sublime melodies, purposefully juxtaposed meters, love, and beauty map the exquisitely detailed yet fluid movement of this music, which has been purposefully designed to embrace the listener."
