Featuring: James Brandon Lewis (tenor saxophone), Luke Stewart (bass), Warren G Crudup III (drums).

Firehouse 12 is very pleased to present saxophonist James Brandon Lewis on October 19, in his debut on the Jazz Concert Series. Born in Buffalo NY, Lewis recruited the Washington DC based rhythm section of bassist Luke Stewart and drummer Warren Trae Crudup III for this group. Together, 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 Ornette Coleman’s Prime Time bands to A Tribe Called Quest. This concert will draw on music from the trio’s 2016 release No Filter.
