Iowa City’s Jack Lion, comprised of drummer Justin LeDuc, trumpeter Brian Lewis Smith, and bassist/vocalist Drew Morton, blends the members’ formal jazz training with electronic and improvised music.

The band’s most recent release, the K L EP (Goldie Records, 2015), follows their successful debut, the JAC EP, which was featured on the Play B-Sides Blog’s Top 20 Albums of 2014.

“With a breadth of influences such as Miles Davis, … Lapalux and Bjork,” writes one reviewer for the Charlie Cedar music blog. “Their sound encompasses an incredible range of musical diversity. From traditional jazz to more modern down-tempo beats, the experience of listening to a Jack Lion album is akin to watching fireworks on the 4th of July – awe inspiring, energetic, but most of all, spontaneous and unpredictable.”
