Darryl Jones Documentary “In The Blood” Out Now

Darryl Jones: In The BloodAnother hero of the bass is getting his due with the release of a new documentary. Darryl Jones: In The Blood is an incredible film about the bassist who has been with The Rolling Stones for the past three decades.

A product of the bustling landscape of Chicago’s south side, Jones has had a hand in creating some of the most epic music of his generation. His résumé includes stints with Miles Davis, Sting, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, Madonna, Patti Labelle, and more.

“When I was a kid, I didn’t want to be Michael Jackson. I wanted to play with Michael Jackson,” he says in the film. “I wanted to play with all of the best artists.”

In The Blood features in-depth interviews with Jones as well as artists from throughout his career. Stones members Mick Jagger and Keith Richards sing his praises, as well as the late Charlie Watts, marking one of the drummer’s last filmed interviews.

“With the nature of who Jones is and his story, the bio-doc also takes exploration into the connection between music, politics, and the racism embedded in America,” the film’s description adds.

Darryl Jones: In The Blood is out now in select theaters and on demand via Amazon and Apple TV. The DVD ships October 25th.
