30.10.2015. Although Jelena Jovovic collected some great artists on stage and showed what we already know; she has a great voice, and the upstairs sessions in the Amerika Room gave space to new modern free jazz, it was the James Brandon Lewis Trio that stole the show.
The James Brandon Lewis Trio played with so much passion and fire; there was no escaping there music. The struggling of black people in the USA, the still existing racism, all stuff that influence his trio. And of course the influence of the music on the streets like hip-hop. Inside the music; gospel, funk and a lot of free jazz, but always with an enormous pace. Some moments had a little bit too much repeating of sounds, but most of the concert was exciting. We will see these guys again, mark my words…
A few photos on tonight;
