"And now, this is alto saxophonist/composer Darius Jones' highly anticipated second recording as a bandleader, and it delivers in killin' fashion. Big Gurl (Smell My Dream) presents the next chapter of his ongoing Man'ish Boy series of compositions introduced on Jones' widely acclaimed debut, Man'ish Boy (A Raw & Beautiful Thing). Whereas the first record was inspired by aspects of Jones' early childhood in rural Virginia, Big Gurl (Smell My Dream) takes inspiration from his years of study, experimentation and self-discovery at university where he began the search for his own voice. This album features his long-standing trio with young bright lights of the NYC music universe, bassist Adam Lane and drummer Jazon Nazary; the trio fully owns this new book of Jones' indelible compositions."
