MIJF: I Hold The Lion’s Paw – ‘Lost In Place’ Album Launch
Thursday, December 2, 2021 @ 10:00 pm - 11:45 pm
Jon Hassell meets Ornette Coleman, meets Sun Ra. I Hold the Lion’s Paw sounds familiar and, at the same time, like nothing else you’ve ever heard.
Presenting a long-awaited sophomore release, the group led by trumpeter-composer-electronic artist Reuben Lewis, launch Lost in Place, an album that takes the audience even deeper into the group’s immersive sound world of electro-ambience, grungy afro-grooves and psychedelic jazz with nod towards retro sci-fi.
Lost in Place is offered as a meditation on our growing need as a society to navigate a path through overwhelming global turmoil, as we seek a place – even if temporarily – to land.
