The James Brandon Lewis Trio was established with one goal in mind … to chase energy! Drawing on the legacy of great trios of the past such as Air, JBL 3 is a power trio with a Sax .. from hip-hop to punk rock.
James Brandon Lewis (b.1983) is a critically- acclaimed composer, saxophonist, and writer. He has received accolades from NPR, ASCAP Foundation, Macdowell, and The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. He has been described as “ a saxophonist who embodies and transcends tradition” by The New York Times. "The saxophonist has balanced a deep, gospel -informed spirituality with Free-Jazz- abandon and hard-hitting funk-meets-hip-hop underpinning," says Rolling Stone Magazine. His 2021 release, Jessup Wagon was selected Record of the Year by Jazz Times. James was recently voted Rising Star Tenor Saxophonist by Downbeat magazine's 2020s International Critics poll. He attended Howard University and received his M.F.A from California Institute of the Arts.
