Columbus-based drummer (as well as composer, arranger, and educator) Mark Lomax II and his trio (Eddie Bayard on tenor saxophone and Dean Hulett on bass) released their second Inarhyme Records album Isis & Osiris on September 16th.

The result is a cohesive body of work that tells these stories through beautifully emotional spiritual jazz. Read More →
