The work of Bayard and Lomax contained in this recording is not meaningless. It is, first and foremost, art. It represents maturing musicians engaging the creation of a master and finding their own voice within the spiritual space the honored elder has created for deep conversation and revelation. Their 10th duo recording, the risks have not changed in the 64 years since the original release. The Ogún Meji Duo’s approach to Freedom Suite captures the essence that catalyzed its genesis in 1958 while addressing today's national and global challenges. Freedom Suite remains probing, relevant, and profound.

The Last Concert: Ankh & The Tree of Life is a recording of what would become the ensembles last live concert before the COVID-19 pandemic brought the country to a screeching halt. The significance of this recording is not limited to its relation to the pandemic, it shows an almost 20 year old ensemble in the midst of its first sustained national tour, is a documentation of that artistic growth, and is the first live performance of Ankh & The Tree of Life, a composition created and released as part of Lomax’s monumental 400: An Afrikan Epic project. The Last Concert presents artists at the top of their form, performing in the context of a country in the midst of shutting down to save lives from a global pandemic, and an urgency of knowing this would be the last time they would perform together for the near future.

Telling the story in settings as fundamental as the drum, through the visceral improvisation of jazz interplay and the bracing architecture of modern classical composition, the music celebrates the resilience, brilliance, strength, genius, and creativity of a people who continue to endure while offering an inspired view of the future.
