John Lewis

Piano, more piano, same instrument, different universe. I’m thinking, of course, of my last entry, about Floyd Cramer.

Lewis was the leader of the Modern Jazz Quartet, and I have one solo recording that he did (he did many) which comes from some anthology of various artists.

John Lewis:

Two Degrees East, Three Degrees West – Very different this is from what he was doing with MJQ. Heavy on the string arrangement, a completely different feel.
