From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Darryl Jones (born December 11, 1961), also known as "The Munch", is an American bass guitarist. He is highly regarded for his stylish bass-playing in jazz, blues, and rock music. He is most well known for playing with The Rolling Stones, of which he is an unofficial member.

Jones was born in Chicago, Illinois, and attended Southern Illinois University Carbondale. He joined Miles Davis' band in 1983, was mentored as a young jazz musician protege by Davis, and played bass guitar on the Miles Davis albums Decoy (1984) and You're under Arrest (1985). Jones has worked with jazz recording artists Herbie Hancock's Headhunters, Mike Stern, John Scofield, and Steps Ahead, as well as touring pop and rock artists Sting, Peter Gabriel, Madonna, Eric Clapton and Joan Armatrading.

Jones has performed and recorded with The Rolling Stones since founding bassist Bill Wyman's retirement in 1993. In the manner of several veteran tour and recording sidemen for The Rolling Stones band, such as saxist Bobby Keys and keyboardist Chuck Leavell, Jones' stage posturing, movement and audience interaction is understated and he wears non-concert-themed apparel on stage, and does not have a financial participation in band's worldwide publishing, recording and concert touring enterprises.
