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.
