Nothing as beautiful as following the course of an interesting, young musician, especially if he has planned not to sit with the suits. Tenor saxophonist James Brandon Lewis made a furor with his trio in 2017. On radiant imprints he is heard with master drummer Chad Edward Taylor. The result is free and soulful, and sometimes surprisingly catchy. Radiant Imprints is a strong, soulful statement by musicians who possess baggage and technology, but also instinct, emotion and character. And with that you not only address the head, but also the heart. James Brandon Lewis a critically acclaimed saxophonist, composer, recording artist and educator.
