Tenor saxophonist Lawrence Clark will celebrate the release of his sophomore album Inner Visions on August 9, 2019, with a special concert at The LetLove Inn in Astoria, NY. His new album, offered through the European Jazz Tribes label, features trumpeters Jeremy Pelt and Duane Eubanks with David Bryant, piano and Rhodes; Darrell Green, drums; and Joris Teepe, bass. Inner Visions will be initially available on Bandcamp and select websites on August 9, 2019 and later via major distribution platforms on September 20, 2019.

A native of Camden, NJ, Clark has performed in venues and festivals throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and Africa, and has played alongside many world-renowned musicians including Norman Simmons, Winard Harper, David Bryant, Jeremy Pelt, Orrin Evans, Azar Lawrence, Tyshawn Sorey, Eric McPherson, David Weiss, Billy Hart, Anthony Wonsey, Gene Jackson, Reggie Workman, Babatunde Lea, Dwayne Burno, Billy Drummond, and Rashied Ali, among several others.

Inner Visions represents Clark's journey both musically and spiritually and pays homage to one of his biggest inspirations with whom he played for many years, Rashied Ali. Of Ali, Clark states, “Rashid was not only my mentor but also my good friend, like family. This album is a dedication to him and all my heroes." Another significant influence of Clark's is John Coltrane, and the selections “Blew" and “Freedom" were written with the jazz master's open and free artistic philosophy in mind.
