Jones, Darius Quartet Feat. Emile Lesbros: Le bebe de Brigitte (Lost in Translation) (Aum Fidelity)

Label: Aum Fidelity    
Released in: USA    

"Le bebe de Brigitte (Lost in Translation) is alto saxophonist-composer Darius Jones' new album work, and the 5th installment in his expansive Man'ish Boy epic. The highly acclaimed series began in 2009 with Man'ish Boy (A Raw and Beautiful Thing), and shall eventually comprise nine albums. This release arrives soundly at the mid-way point with aplomb, and is performed by the Darius Jones Quartet featuring vocalist Emilie Lesbros. As ever with Jones' work, the compositional palette ranges widely here. From the new blues swagger of 'Universal Translator' to the equally universal sense of great loss evoked in 'I Can't Keep From Weeping' (as aching a ballad as Jones has yet written/recorded); from the infectiously swinging and(finally) unhinged cabaret dialogue that is 'Chanteuse in Blue' to perhaps the deepest essence of the album (and platforms of intent) which are 'Two Worlds, One Soul' and 'Beneath The Skin', a pair of extended works which evolve with the utmost in careful consideration to timing and gesture by all involved. French singer-lyricist Emilie Lesbros' own composition, 'Quand Vient la Nuit' (arr. by Darius Jones) closes and lyrically encapsulates the album: espousing no fear, in life, in art.-Aum Fidelity"
