“A ferocious Lomax generates so much heat his drumming could power an entire metropolis.”—Textura

Featuring Mark Lomax on drums, saxophonist Edwin Bayard, and Dr. William Menefield on piano, the Mark Lomax Trio has become a force on the local jazz scene, rewarding listeners swept up by their dedication and drive. An acclaimed jazz drummer and composer, Lomax consistently impresses with his impassioned playing. His work is often as inspired by writers and thinkers such as Amiri Baraka and August Wilson as it is by spiritual jazz forebears like Elvin Jones, John Coltrane, and Archie Shepp. As Lucid Culture observed, “Lomax is the rare drummer who leaves you wanting more...[with an] ultimately joyous series of explorations.”
