A Seattle-based garage-jazz quartet featuring D'Vonne Lewis, Ahamefule J. Oluo, Josh Rawlings, and Evan Flory-Barnes.

What is Industrial Revelation? This question is not easy to answer. I have tried again and again to put my finger on the music, to say what it is precisely, where it comes from, what its roots are, what it might be related or referring to. But I honestly have no idea how to classify it. This critic has to be silent on the matter. True, the four musicians have deep jazz backgrounds—the founder D’Vonne Lewis is a jazz drummer, Evan Flory-Barnes is a jazz bassist, Ahamefule J. Oluo is a jazz trumpeter, and Josh Rawlings is a jazz pianist. But knowing the background and training of these musicians does not help to explain the music they make as IR. Yes, there are some tracks that have a clear jazz sound, but with the exception of one—the exquisitely beautiful “Color of Caliman”—it’s never stable but evolves into other strange and wonderful things.

“All the music I make with other groups is done with the aim of supporting IR,” Lewis told me one afternoon in a cafe. “This is my core project.” That’s a huge statement coming from a man who is recognized as one of the best and most established jazz drummers in the city. IR is a risky project; it’s ungrounded and indifferent to the limits of the jazz tradition. Why would it be at the center of his career and not, say, an interesting side project? Because for Lewis and the other members, IR is essentially research and development. Meaning, you have to see this album as the result of a kind of blue-sky musical thinking. And indeed, this kind of thinking is all the more rewarding if it is placed at very center of things. The most productive research programs in science and also the economy always place a premium on blue-sky thinking. From the unknown, the new emerges. Charles Mudede
