LEWIS PORTER’S NEW RELEASE: TRIO SOLO (UR9964)
“Lewis Porter and co. have put together a wonderful recording full of inspired trio excursions and beautiful solo explorations….It’s full of surprises from tune to tune that captured me completely…Bravo !!!” – Joe Lovano
Renowned in a variety of disciplines (author of THE Coltrane biography and founder of the world’s first jazz history program at Rutgers), virtuoso pianist LEWIS PORTER steps out of his much in-demand sideman roles and offers an album of his own trio and solo performances. The trio, with double-bassist JORIS TEEPE and drummer RUDY ROYSTON, perform with power and grace while Porter’s intimate piano solos range from lyrical to pointillistic in this, his auspicious debut for UNSEEN RAIN.
