Album Description

Drawing inspiration from the book 'Blues People' (LeRoi 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.
