Lewis Jordan : : saxophones and poetry

He is an international touring and recording musician and poet. His teachers are the streets: the music and poetry of Ayler, Coleman, Shepp, the Art Ensemble of Chicago; the thoughts and spirit of Krishnamurti, Rumi, Csikszentmihalyi. He brings the transformative nature of human collaboration to all his projects.

He has focused on creative structures for improvisation, which leads to his work with artists from a range of practice: dance, poetry, theater and visual arts, many of whom he has presented in his Music at Large series. He continues to produce interdisciplinary and multicultural productions and to seek out performers who strive for modes of expression that honor their traditions while speaking to the urgency of the present.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
