The James Brandon Lewis trio was established with one goal in mind: to chase energy! Their music is gritty, funky, and explosive and seeks to combine jazz with other big energy genres, everything from hip-hop to punk rock.
The trio will also collaborate with poets Tuhin Das (Bangladesh) and Aurielle Marie (US). James, a poet in his own right, is an expert collaborator. It’s a joy to watch him working with poets to find the rhythms and the ethos, and build something new and remarkable together.
This celebratory evening is the perfect spirit to close out Jazz Poetry 2022.
