Master jazz drummer, searching composer, and sought after lecturer, Mark Lomax creates music that uplifts and ‘edutains.’ As a drummer Mark has led his own groups and has been featured as a member of the Marlon Jordan Quintet, the Delfeayo Marsalis Sextet, The Ellis Marsalis Quintet, and the Azar Lawrence Quintet among others. He has also performed with legendary jazz performers Billy Harper and Bennie Maupin!
Mark has penned over 200 compositions for many genres including jazz, gospel, and classical. His orchestral arrangements of gospel songs have been played by the Nashville Symphony, the National Symphony, and the Akron Symphony to name a few.
His jazz pieces, which run the gamut from ‘head’ arrangements to extended compositions, have been performed, and recorded by his premier performing ensembles: The Mark Lomax Quartet, The Mark Lomax Trio, The Lomax-Bayard Trio, and his 30 piece chamber group The Afro-chamber Ensemble. Lomax has produced eight recordings as a leader/producer/arranger. His latest CD “The State of Black America” has been given rave reviews!
