Lewis Jordan Trio, for Langston Hughes on his Birthday
Lewis Jordan is a saxophonist and poet, playing to scale walls, working to build bridges. He explores forms of creativity and expression through improvisational and interdisciplinary approaches, working with artists from a range of practices: dance, poetry, theatre and music, presented in his Music at Large series. His influences stretch from the music of Leadbelly, Mingus and Ayler to the words of Cummings, Hughes and Krishnamurti.
