About

Photographer | Multimedia Artist | Music Management – James Brandon Lewis

Statement: I create imagery using stills and motion that tell the stories about people and the things that are important to them in their lives.  I am passionate about using my lens to illustrate narratives that create interest and inspiration.  I have a love for documentary, fashion, and portraiture photography and I enjoy connecting with my subjects to bringing out their story in a way that will reach the viewing audience and leave the subject with a positive experience about how their story is told.

Bio: Diane is an photographer + multimedia artist working in New York City.  Photography has been a part of her life since she was an adolescent teenager growing up in Brooklyn.  She studied photography at the School of Visual Arts and decades later established a name in the field of magazine and book publishing as a distinguished photo editor + visual content producer.

James Brandon Lewis Trio

New Album ” No Filter” Available Now!

 

Fresh off his Fall European tour, James Brandon Lewis Trio at Sonic City in Belgium. Curated by Thurston Moore #NoFilter

Music video by James Brandon Lewis performing Days of FreeMan. (C) 2015 Sony 

“James Brandon Lewis, A Jazz Saxophonist In His 30s, Raw-Toned But Measured, Doesn’t Sound Steeped In Current Jazz-Academy Values And Isn’t Really Coming From A Free-Improvising Perspective. There’s An Independence About Him, And On “Days Of FreeMan” (Okeh), He Makes It Sound Natural To Play Roaming, Experimental Funk, With Only The Electric Bassist Jamaladeen Tacuma And The Drummer Rudy Royston, And Without Much Sonic Enhancement. The Record Sounds A Little Reminiscent Of What James Blood Ulmer And Ornette Coleman Were Doing In The Late ’70s And Early ’80s — On Records That Included Mr. Tacuma — But It’s Not Clearly Evoking A Particular Past. Maybe It’s An Improvised Take On Early ’90s Hip-Hop, As Mr. Lewis Has Suggested, But It Sounds Less Clinical Than That. It Sounds Like Three Melodic Improvisers Going For It.”

— The New York Times
