welcome

For the Music of Miles Davis concert in May, his "All Blues" did Davis great justice, and his version of "Seven Steps to Heaven," one of the most difficult pieces in the jazz canon, was stellar. He closed that one out with a wicked alto solo that had the house on its feet before the song was done.

No one around here contributes to jazz on as many levels as Lewis does.

He plays, composes, arranges, leads bands, teaches, collaborates and inspires.

I wouldn't be surprised if he can sing, too.

But wait, he does that on his horn.

..."Swagger" is a hip tense up-tempo burner and is a very impressive closer on a very impressive recording.


Jim Josselyn, Cadence Magazine



This is a refreshing disc. Within the standard quartet format, these veteran musicians deliver a spirited performance... Judging by this CD, some great things are happening in South Carolina.


Michael Bettine, JazzNow


...Lewis has a beautifully round, smoky tone that can take on a bit of edge when called for. Whether he's playing a sentimental ballad like "Hush", a New Orleans-styled blues like "Steppin' Out" or snappy swinger like "Esperanca," he knows how to make each song sing...
