JAMES BRANDON LEWIS TRIO
The James Brandon Lewis Trio:
James Brandon Lewis - tenor saxophone
Luke Stewart - bass
Warren "Trae" Crudup III - drums
Three virtuoso musicians that bring every ounce of their musical roots to create one of the most invigorating concert experiences you will have this year. Last year, Sonny Rollins hand-picked James to perform at a tribute in his honor--that's how deep James is. And we challenge you to find a more synced and nimble rhythm section than Luke and Trae, two leading lights on the DC creative scene. What they've built as a trio these past few years is something to behold. The path forward. CHECK OUT THE ATTACHED VIDEO CLIP!
