Jul 24, 2015 | Tenor Saxophonist James Brandon Lewis Releases Days Of FreeMan, A Tribute To His Hip-Hop Roots -- Album Available Now

"I didn't grow up a hip-hop head, but where I grew up in Buffalo, New York, on Freeman Street, the sound of 1990s hip-hop was ubiquitous," James Brandon Lewis says. "I decided to go back and explore that time through music."

Jul 24, 2015

NEW YORK, July 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Visionary composer and tenor saxophonist James Brandon Lewis's bravest, yet most palpable artistic feat, Days Of FreeMan, opens with a poignant and profound introductory monologue from a maternal sage. She says: "The best thing of living is living who you are. You can't be somebody else; you gotta be what God gave you to be and who you are. You look in the mirror and see yourself and say 'I'm James Brandon Lewis."' Next, bass and drums congeal around the sapphire melodic motif of "Brother 1976," recalling one of those jazzy jewel-like hooks from a 1990s Native Tongue hip-hop jam. The effect is like 1990s hip-hop's fascination with jazz being spit back by a prodigious jazz innovator. Welcome to Days Of FreeMan (OKeh) available July 24, 2015.

For his third album, James uses ideas from 1990s hip-hop to masterfully weave together threads of cultural identity, cross-generational identity, and personal reflection.

Days Of FreeMan is imaginatively organized in chapters with classic hip-hop style breaks and interludes functioning as chapter breathers. Like the cross cultural and generational mosaic on Freeman Street proper, the album invites the listener into many dialogues. It is a nod to 1990s hip-hop, and explores rhyme-scapes and the musical conventions of that golden age of hip-hop in a revolutionary way. The album also explores hip-hop as a culture through taking inspiration from the original four pillars of hip-hop: dance, rapping, graffiti, and DJ-ing.

The album also loosely functions as a memoir with an underlay of nostalgia for the carefree boyhood days of fly nicknames, basketball, and those first encounters with the transformative power of music. Adding to the power and emotionality of this thread on growing up, are pontifications on love, identity, and God peppered throughout the album, culled from informal conversations James recorded with his grandmother, Pearl Lewis.

James's immersive creative process to realize his vision for Days Of FreeMan include pouring over hip-hop documentaries for up to eight hours a day, and dissecting albums by KRS-One, Digable Planets, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, A Tribe Called Quest, Medeski, Martin & Wood, along with fearless jazz trumpeter Don Cherry's 1985 album Home Boy and Lauryn Hill's 1998 masterpiece the Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill.

How all of this preparation plays out musically is stunning. For years instrumentalists held fast to the lofty notion of "singing through the instrument," but on Days Of FreeMan, James aspires to MC through his tenor. The album's title track perfectly captures the clipped cadence of a master MC with speech-like phrases and a long flowing solo that conjures up a blazing freestyle battle rap session. "Black Ark" traces the legacy of hip-hop from the balmy and pioneering dub explorations of Lee "Scratch" Perry in Jamaica ("Black Ark" is the name of his famed studio) to the burgeoning sounds of hip-hop blaring out in the Bronx.  On "Lament for JLew," in five vigorous minutes James ties together the dual lineages of classical music to hip-hop and classical music to rock using original classical-flavored motifs to illustrate the overlaps.

The second to last track of Days Of FreeMan is the political and timely "Unarmed With A Mic" and is a reminder of hip-hop's power as a form of protest music. On this track, James plays with seething sentimentality. The album concludes with "Epilogue," a reprise of the infectious melody of the opening track "Brother 1976."

On the album, James is accompanied by drummer Rudy Royston. Both took the weighty undertaking of album deeply, researching 1990s hip-hop jams for inspiration and vision. Their attention to the vocabulary of the era James sought to explore, and their panoramic musicality and sympathetic musical skills, match James's artistic ideal to authentically and thoroughly fuse genres and cultures without pandering to trends in jazz-groove records. The record also features a guest spot from the gifted freestyle rapper Supernatural on the track "Days Of FreeMan."

Days of FreeMan is one of James Brandon Lewis's most ambitious works and his most accessible. Reflecting on this intriguing duality he says: "The artist is charged with taking creative risks, but the universe lined up this time and I was able to connect with my audience conversationally."

Complete Columbia Albums Collection (Vinyl): http://smarturl.it/sg_ccac_amzn
Concert in Central Park (CD/DVD): http://smarturl.it/sg_cicpCD_amzn

PBS has announced that it will air "The Concert in Central Park" (a full-length film originally broadcast on HBO in 1982) during its August Pledge Week (please check local listings).

The most comprehensive 12" vinyl Simon & Garfunkel anthology ever assembled, The Complete Columbia Albums Collection includes the duo's five Columbia Records studio masterpieces (first released between 1964 and 1970) as well as Simon and Garfunkel's Greatest Hits, their all-time best-selling title. Originally released in June 1972, two years after the duo split up, Simon and Garfunkel's Greatest Hits--a mix of 10 studio tracks (nine of them singles) and four (then) previously unreleased live recordings--sold more than 14 million copies in the US alone.

The new CD/DVD and 12" vinyl release of The Concert in Central Park (recorded in 1981) has been remastered for its CD/DVD and 12" vinyl release. Simon & Garfunkel's historic 1981 reunion concert drew more than half a million fans to New York's Central Park and was originally released as an album for Warner Bros. in February 1982.

Each of the discs housed in the Simon & Garfunkel - Complete Columbia Albums Collection comes in a 12" sleeve replicating the original album artwork. Each of the albums in the boxed collection has been remastered and struck on 180gram audiophile vinyl.

These six Columbia Records albums are the essential recordings which defined Simon & Garfunkel's distinctive harmonic sound and Paul Simon's probing lyrical sensibilities for a succession of generations who've come of age listening to the duo's culturally transformative music.

Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, each born in 1941, grew up three blocks away from each other in Kew Garden Hills, Queens, New York and met in grade school in 1953 when they were both cast in the same school play. Simon, a guitarist and aspiring songwriter, and Garfunkel, an extraordinary singer with a pure tenor range and uncanny intonation, began performing together as "Tom and Jerry" in the mid-1950s, releasing their first professional recording in 1957.

The duo's original sound, initially influenced by the harmonies of the Everly Brothers and the insistent rockin' rhythms and poetic swing of Chuck Berry, made a quantum leap during the Greenwich Village folk music scene of the early 1960s. Paul Simon's songwriting developed along provocative and topical lines when the pair recorded Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M.--their first album as "Simon & Garfunkel" and their first for Columbia Records--in 1964.

Though S&G's debut reached only a small audience when first released, one of its tracks, "The Sound of Silence"--a haunting acoustic recording illuminated by the signature solo and harmony vocal blends S&G invented and perfected--had been overdubbed with electric instruments and released to radio, unbeknownst to either Simon or Garfunkel. The electrified version of "The Sound of Silence" became a massive hit, one of the archetypal anthems of an emerging folk-rock movement. Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. was re-released in January 1966, alongside Simon & Garfunkel's second studio album, Sounds of Silence, which included the electric hit single version of the song.

"The Sound of Silence" launched a long unbroken chain of hits and album successes for Simon & Garfunkel. "I Am a Rock," a song that first appeared on The Paul Simon Songbook, became an enormous smash in its Simon & Garfunkel incarnation.

Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, S&G's third studio album, was released in October 1966 and generated five singles.

"Mrs. Robinson," another anthemic Paul Simon composition, became the centerpiece for the soundtrack to "The Graduate," the iconic generational film directed by Mike Nichols.

"Mrs. Robinson" was also included on Simon & Garfunkel's fourth studio album, Bookends, which hit #1 in the US and the UK, becoming the pair's first #1 album. Simon and Garfunkel upped the ante once again with Bridge Over Troubled Water, an album that hit #1 all over the world following its release in January 1970. Their fifth, and last full studio album, Bridge Over Troubled Water featured a title track that ranks with the most beautiful songs ever written, made unforgettable through one of the most emotionally uplifting vocal performances ever recorded. "Bridge Over Troubled Water" brought the two partners' gifts to their highest expression. The album has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide.

Going out on the high note of Bridge Over Troubled Water, Simon & Garfunkel broke up their musical partnership to pursue individual musical, artistic and personal directions.

Simon and Garfunkel have reunited periodically for special musical events, notably a free concert in New York's Central Park in 1981, captured in The Concert in Central Park and a select series of "Old Friends" shows in 2004.

When Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel reunited for a one-off performance on the Great Lawn of New York's Central Park in 1981, the high-profile event drew one of the largest audiences ever assembled for a single concert. The show incorporated breath-taking full-band arrangements of Simon & Garfunkel's best-loved songs into a fan's dream set-list featuring incredible selections from Paul Simon's and Art Garfunkel's solo repertoires.

The 1981 Simon & Garfunkel reunion came into being when New York City officials decided to hold a free public concert to help the nonprofit Central Park Conservancy raise awareness and money for desperately needed renovations to the park, then in a state of serious decline. The right choice to headline the concert would have an enormous impact on the future of the city and the rebirth of Central Park.

Simon & Garfunkel, quintessential New Yorkers, embodied the spirit of the city, the times and generations of music lovers. "Unlike many of the Gotham-bred pop stars of their generation who made it big," wrote Stephen Holden in his review of the concert for Rolling Stone. "[Simon and Garfunkel] stayed around the city, continuing to assimilate its cultural resources, recycle them and give them back."

Simon & Garfunkel took to the Great Lawn on September 19, 1981, with a diverse set that drew upon their classic works as well as selections from Paul and Art's solo catalogs, many performed with dramatic new arrangements augmented with an expanded, 11-man band including notable session players Pete Carr (guitar), Anthony Jackson (bass), Richard Tee (piano), Rob Mounsey (synthesizers) and Steve Gadd (drums). An early rainfall did not deter audiences; an estimated 500,000 people were in attendance, exceeding initial expectations and becoming one of the largest concert audiences of all time.

In 1982, The Concert In Central Park was released as a double album and broadcast on HBO. Fans and critics were unanimous in their praise of the concert, while the duo would be inspired to embark on a world tour in the spring of that year. As the decade continued, donations inspired by the concert helped restore the park to its current state, with concerts still regularly held on the Great Lawn in the spirit of Simon & Garfunkel's magical night more than three decades ago.

* * * * *

Simon & Garfunkel created one of pop music's most distinctive vocal harmony signature sounds and their biggest hits--including "The Sound of Silence" (1964), "I Am a Rock" (1965), "Homeward Bound" (1965), "Scarborough Fair/Canticle" (1966), "A Hazy Shade of Winter" (1966), "Mrs. Robinson" (1968), "Bridge over Troubled Water" (1969), "The Boxer" (1969), and "Cecilia" (1969)--have topped the charts all over the world. Simon & Garfunkel are the recipients of several Grammy Awards. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.
