Lewis Jordan and Music at Large release a new recording, "this is where i came in"
(Published: June 23, 2017)

In this recording, saxophonist and poet Lewis Jordan brings together all the elements that have nurtured him from the beginning: a love of free improvisation, a love of structure, a love of words, and always an eye/ear to how our art shapes our world.

With Music at Large, he has involved longtime collaborators, Jimmy Biala, Karl Evangelista and Erich Hunt, together with new collaborators, David Boyce and Ian Carey. The compositions and poems expand Music at Large's palette from early productions to contemporary expressions. The sweep of over a generation of influences shows up on this recording-from the inspired instrumental approach that he helped pioneer in the Sound Clinic (with George Sams and Bruce Ackley), to the seminal work expanding the palette of improvisational sources in United Front (with Sams, Mark Izu, Carleton Hoffman and Anthony Brown), to the everpresent need to put words to what and how we feel.

Musical inspirations-including Albert Ayler, Charles Tyler and Lester Bowie-are recognized in the poetry and music. Reflection on and refraction of society are part of the soundscape. Poetic license claimed and declaimed. The collection closes with a musically-framed reading from Bertolt Brecht's "To Those Born Later."
