Recorded in 2013, this is the first in a series of recordings placing Lomax in the direct lineage of master drummers Max Roach and Michael Carvin who have worked to develop a highly musical solo language on the instrument.
"The Blues People must remember the language of the Drum to truly be free”
Utilizing a single non-transposing pitch class represents the infiniteness of the Spirit which is always creating and never changes, even though the manifestation of its creation changes. This differing manifestation is represented by the blues section where the rhythm changes to a more African-American/Black sensibility but is made of the same essence/spirit. There is no other instrument under the Sun created by man that speaks to the feet and soul, like the sound of the DRUM!
