THE COVENANT
 

Since 2015, this band has been devoted not only to standards, but also to sacred works. The Covenant is a group that has songs that carry the message of the Gospel through the struggles of humanity. From "Bye, Bye, Blackbird" to "Just A Closer Walk With Thee" the covenant carries a pursuance and story through every note. They are also one of the few jazz groups that would be allowed in a church as well as jazz venues around the world.

Carrying the message of the Gospel through the struggles of humanity with music; jazz.

LATEST SET

The Spiritual Side of Duke" is a presentation of some of Duke Ellington's Sacred Works, Hymns, and Negro Spirituals.  This has been executed with the John Lumpkin Trio and can be performed with a larger ensemble.  The Sacred Works were described by Duke as "One of his best works", and I privileged to carry on his music about the gospel.
