Blues People + The Art of Sound

Drawing inspiration from Jones, Lomax has created a piece reflective of the Duboisian concept of double consciousness, at once simplistic and complex. Lomax’s ‘Blues People’ is a seven movement composition that draws from the familiar “simplicity” of Negro Spirituals (sacred Blues) and the complexity of free improvisation of the avant-garde jazz period to create a powerful musical narrative of the ongoing African American struggle for identity, power, and Human rights.
Movements:

I.    Afrika
II.   Ma'afa
III.  Prisoners Of War
IV.  Freedom|Reconstruction|KKK
V.   Civil Rights
VI.  Amerikkka
VII. Freedom Ain't Free
The Art of Sound is the art of communication at the level of energy/spirit. The music captured on this recording contains vibrations of the purest intent. The same intent that manifested A Love Supreme (Coltrane), Freedom Suite (Rollins), Members Don’t Get Weary (Roach), Planetary Unknown (Ware), and On Fire (Jordan). Their purpose is the work of reconnecting humanity to itself, and the music heard here, created from the very depths of their souls, reflects the complexities of human existence.
