James Brandon

Lewis Trio

with Luke Stewart and Warren Trae Crudrup.

 

 

JBL Trio  their free improvisations in a funk idiom wed Coltrane and Band of Gypsies-era Hendrix, with a nod to major jazz-and-groove exemplars in the meanwhile, from Prime Time to A Tribe Called Quest. Of the trio’s debut record, Jazzwise Magazine states, “No Filter unveils a raw, rugged, uncut and uncompromising aesthetic, and that is exactly what the players deliver. The sheer hardness of their attack has the front row initially leaning back, eyebrows raised and then heads nodding in hypnosis when the full force of the music really starts to kick in.”
