Format: Audio CD
Saxophonist James Brandon Lewis takes us on a spiritual journey on his sophomore release, the aptly named Divine Travels. Over the course of Lewis’ ten original compositions, which add up to 67 minutes, the NYC-based Lewis traverses a path which combines elements of free or avant-garde jazz, post-bop and the kind of auditory terrain which John Coltrane navigated toward the end of his career. On Divine Travels, Lewis weds his gospel and jazz background into a cohesive manner: he tried to do the same on his debut, 2010’s Moments, but here the music and his intent coalesces and gels.

Part of the reason the material flows so well is Lewis’ maturity as composer and performer (although he’s still relatively young, just now hitting his third decade), but the album is also successful due to Lewis’ two-way rhythm team, drummer Gerald Cleaver and bassist William Parker. Cleaver (who left his Detroit base to reside in New York City) has worked with numerous artists, including pianist Craig Taborn, Roscoe Mitchell and Jacky Terrasson, and has had a stream of solo records since the early 2000s. Parker has a long history in the free jazz scene. He’s collaborated with Cecil Taylor, David S. Ware, Matthew Shipp and many more, and began issuing solo projects in the late 1970s.

The leading tunes meld a sacred fervor with the passionate essence of free jazz. Bits of gospel melodies occur or are suggested during the almost 12-minute opus, “Wading Child in the Motherless Water,” which interlaces traces of “Wade in the Water” and “Sometimes I Feel like a Motherless Child.” But this is no mere pastiche. The trio creates music new and innovative from the musical roots.

Lewis maintains a supportive equilibrium between the fiery cuts and other numbers which focus on subtlety.

It came like they promised it would, and I really appreciate when the product lives up to the expectations of the dealer, and me.
