Cometh the hour, cometh the saxophone player, cometh the optimum organic jazz club experience - it is a Saturday night to look forward to given that the 27th May is now up on the Vortex website for a return to the much loved Dalston club by James Brandon Lewis in trio formation on this occasion with electric bassist Josh Werner and drummer Chad Taylor.
The saxist's Eye of I is our February album of the month.
Glorious stuff, given its free-jazz and punkish language, the sound of freedom made flesh by the American heavyweight given the topicality of the upcoming shows it's a good time to hear the 39-year-old Buffalo, New York State-born player, especially how these last few years he has been going through an extended career purple patch.
One of the tenors of our times potential punters can pick up tickets here - there are two houses.
