Performance of Lewis’ newest album, a concept piece exploring the life and work of agricultural scientist, inventor, and social justice activist George Washington Carver. Carver, most well known for inventing 300+ ways to use the peanut, was the most important black farmer of the 20th century. And Lewis sets out to evoke his memory, his legacy, through song.  This is a deeply researched album—Lewis poured through correspondence from Carver and farmer bulletins, but it’s also a deeply emotional and evoking journey through Black genius.

Featured Musicians:
Chris Hoffman (cello)
Kirk Knuffke (bass)
James Brandon Lewis (saxophone)
William Parker (gimbri)
Chad Taylor (drum and mbira)
