The Red Lily Quartet is made up of musicians James brandon lewis (saxophone), Kirk knuffke(horn), William parker (low), Chris Hoffmann (cello), and Chad Taylor (drum and mbira).

Performance of Lewis’ latest album, a conceptual piece exploring the life and work of agronomist, inventor and social justice activist George Washington Carver. Carver, best known for inventing over 300 ways to use peanuts, was the most important black farmer of the 20th century. And Lewis intends to evoke his memory, his heritage, through song. This is an album of extensive research – Lewis has flowed through Carver’s correspondence and farmer newsletters, but it’s also a deeply moving and evocative journey through the dark genius.

There are two ways to watch the program: in person at Alphabet City or live online. If you come live, you can also dine at the hotel restaurant 40 North.
