Andrew Lamb

ANDREW LAMB (saxophones, flutes) was born in Clinton, North Carolina and grew up in Chicago and in South Jamaica, Queens. Having studied with AACM charter member Kalaparush Maurice McIntyre, Mr. Lamb came into New York’s “avant-garde” community in the ’70s, becoming an active presence in the vibrant Bedford-Stuyvesant arts world at that time, and winning a Brooklyn Arts Council grant.

In 1994, he composed all the pieces on his first leader recording, “Portrait in the Mist” (Delmark), which featured vibraphonist Warren Smith, bassist Wilber Morris, and drummer Andrei Strobert. Andrew Lamb has since recorded duets with Warren Smith (”Duet,” WISland, ’99 and “The Dogon Duo,” Engine Studios, '05) and “Dance of the Prophet,” a trio recording with Eugene Cooper and Andrei Strobert (Kiki Records). In 2003 his brilliant recording with Tom Abbs and Andrei Strobert, “Pilgrimage,” was released on CIMP, featuring 1O original Andrew Lamb compositions; that year also brought the release of “Year of the Endless Moment” with his group The Moving Form (Engine Studios).
