Der charismatische Saxofonist und Komponist James Brandon Lewis ist im weiten Feld des zeitgenössischen Jazz der Musiker der Stunde. Nach den international gefeierten Alben Molecular und Code of Being legt er nun mit seinem hochkarätigen Quartett eine Doppel-CD eines denkwürdigen Konzertes vor. Die anspruchsvollen aber durchaus melodiösen Kompositionen von Molecular glänzen auf diesem Live-Album gegenüber dem Studioalbum in entfesselter Form und begeistern mit viel Lust zur Gestaltung und Mut zum offenen Zusammenspiel.

The charismatic saxophonist and composer James Brandon Lewis is the musician of the moment in the broad field of contemporary jazz. After the internationally acclaimed albums Molecular and Code of Being, he now presents a double CD of a memorable concert with his top-class quartet. The demanding but thoroughly melodic compositions of Molecular shine on this live album compared to the studio album in an unleashed form and with much desire to create and courage for open interplay.

“The live recording shows not only the great joy of playing and pleasure in interplay and groove, but also the musical maturation process of four great musicians”, writes Florian Bissig in the liner notes about the concert immortalised on this double CD, and, “It was a celebration that made one’s ears perk up…James Brandon Lewis’ saxophone sound seemed to radiate a quivering liveliness and an expressive urgency rarely heard before. The four musicians, for all their precision and refinement of interplay, seemed to be playing as if it were the last time.”
