Jones, Darius: The Oversoul Manual (Aum Fidelity)

Label: Aum Fidelity    
Released in: USA    


"The Oversoul Manual is the fourth installment / revelation in Darius Jones' central, highly acclaimed, and on-going Man'ish Boy epic. It further reveals and indeed fully features the great talents of Jones as composer & arranger, with daring originality, conceptual richness and deep emotive power to the fore -- as ever in his profound body of work.

An a cappella presentation comprised of 15 pieces performed by his vocal quartet, The Elizabeth-Caroline Unit, it utilizes a heretofore unheard (by Earthlings) sacred language used in the alien birthing ritual of a new being.

The Oversoul Manual is both an elemental part of Jones' M.B. mythology and a fully illuminated expression of his profound love for the human voice, which remains at the foundation of Darius' creative life. The voice was his first instrument; it was his gateway into music. He grew up singing hymns and duets with his sister as a young boy, later becoming gospel choir director at his church in Virginia as a youngman.

Darius' intent with this work was to manifest an experience of great purity, communicative potency, and cleansing joy. And once again, he has succeeded magnificently."-Aum Fidelity
