Whether supporting musical greats or leading his own band, Darryl Jones rocks a fresh soulful groove

Growing up in a musical family on the south side of Chicago and playing alongside diverse world-class artists has provided profound musical insight and inspiration which can only be heard in the music of Darryl Jones.

 

After several years gigging around the Chicago music scene, Darryl’s international recording and touring career took flight at age 21, with jazz icon Miles Davis. Gigs with Sting, Herbie Hancock, Peter Gabriel, Madonna, Eric Clapton, and others soon followed, and since ‘93 he’s been the bassist for the Rolling Stones. When his schedule permits, he performs with other artists, co-leads a couple of bands, serves the legacy of The Chief with the Miles Electric Band; and in 2017 he debuted The Darryl Jones Project.

 

Besides touring and recording, Darryl keeps busy writing music, including composing the score for an award-winning film. He continues his education, and was selected to participate in the Sundance Institute’s famed Music & Sound Design Lab at Skywalker Ranch in 2017.  He teaches classes and conducts clinics around the world, and in 2014 he founded Jones Musical Instrument Company to craft custom basses and guitars.

ACROSS AMERICA - PASADENA, CALIFORNIA

Whole lotta roses

Pasadena, The City of Roses, most famous for its New Year's Day Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game. Jackie Robinson made history when he became the first African American to play in major league baseball. Pasadena is also home to the oldest independent bookstore, Vroman's Bookstore, in business for 120 years. One of LA's first barbceue joints is still there, Gus's BBQ; and The Hat -- World Famous Pastrami for pastrami dip and chili cheese fries the size of your head. Pasadena also has a thriving arts community and houses the beautiful The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens.

See you tonight Rose Bowl Stadium!

ACROSS AMERICA - SANTA CLARA, CALIFORNIA

Well known now as part of Silicon Valley, with many Fortune 500 tech companies housed here, including Intel which even has a dedicated museum.

Many don't know that Santa Clara was actually the first premium wine region in this area, there are number of wineries to visit and taste.

Levi Strauss stepped up to purchase the naming rights in 2013 of the stadium that was built in Santa Clara in 2006 after the San Francisco 49ers plans for a new field in their home of Candlestick Park fell through. Santa Clara became home, also moving their training facility and administrative offices.

Santa Clara is home to one of the largest Muslim Community Association in the country, a non-profit organization whose mission is to "foster peace, justice and compassion for all within our Mosque, our community and the world."

Nothing says America like...Great America, and the one in Santa Clara is known for it's water slides, summer fun!

See you tonight at Levi's Stadium!
