Tapestry is the live recording of a four-movement tone poem inspired by four pieces in artist, Lance Johnson’s, Tapestry series. Each piece of art serves as a graphic score interpreted by the ensemble. The Mark Lomax Trio featuring saxophonist Edwin Bayard, bassist Dean Hulett, and drummer Mark Lomax, II draw parallels between the music and Johnson's visual representation of our most fundamental desire to communicate the truth of our humanity.

Point Zero is a collection of three spontaneous compositions inspired by conversations about the artistic direction carved out by the great New Orleans saxophonist Kidd Jordan. The fourth track is a meditative solo by Lomax.
