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 Instruments to craft custom basses and guitars.

The Queen was not only of soul. She swings this 1940’s pop tune into the dust. Her phrasing—genius. She could literally sing anything. Jazz too. Who knew? Aretha's sophomore Columbia LP- 'The Electrifying Aretha Franklin' (1962)

I came across this and had to share it. This is an amazing ensemble. Although I visited Peru a few years ago and heard some amazing musicians- I know very little about this style of music. I’m excited to keep exploring this genre! Succar brings folkloric Afro Peruvian rhythms such as Landó & Festejo to Miami. His band "Mixtura" is made of musicians from Cuba, Venezuela, Peru, Arub...
