3 Brave Souls: Darryl Jones, John Beasley, Ronald Bruner Jr.
CD Launch Concert
“3 Brave Souls create a groove so deep you could fall right in.” – Urban Flux
On a break from the Rolling Stones’ 50th Anniversary tour, Darryl Jones launches his personal project, 3 Brave Souls, an album made with fellow Miles Davis alumni John Beasley and Ndugu Chancler. The album blends contagious, penetrating funk grooves and a dash of honey-dew sounds of southern soul with classic jazz flavorings.
The CD launch concert features drummer Ronald Bruner Jr., who just recorded with Prince, singer Nayanna Holley (Sheryl Crow, Queen Latifah, Johnny Hallyday), and vocalimproviser Dwight Trible.
“Eclectic brand of funk…danceable music…songs with hypnotic grooves, a soulful stew or a silky ballad. - Jazz Times
