Purchase on Amazon!
NEW YORK, July 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Visionary composer and tenor saxophonist James Brandon Lewis‘s bravest, yet most palpable artistic feat, Days Of FreeMan, opens with a poignant and profound introductory monologue from a maternal sage. She says: “The best thing of living is living who you are. You can’t be somebody else; you gotta be what God gave you to be and who you are. You look in the mirror and see yourself and say ‘I’m James Brandon Lewis.”‘ Next, bass and drums congeal around the sapphire melodic motif of “Brother 1976,” recalling one of those jazzy jewel-like hooks from a 1990s Native Tongue hip-hop jam. The effect is like 1990s hip-hop’s fascination with jazz being spit back by a prodigious jazz innovator.

….”Who ever said that slow jams could be something too close to profane, un-imaginary twists of love when it shouldn’t? Could it be accounted for in the means of admiring someone? Falling in love emotionally? Say a little something of appreciation, ‘hey baby..thank you’….; ‘Cherise.. that dress looks wonderful’……’Care to join me for a cha-cha’?
..And who said Rap Music didn’t have a golden ear for it too?
