Welcome to the Michael C. Lewis website. I am happy to announce that I am releasing the first single from the Intimate Journey Project this month. The first single will be the Earth, Wind, and Fire classic “Reasons” featuring Walter Beasley. Walter and I are very excited about this collaboration and we think you will enjoy it! The single will also feature a remix version with me on muted trumpet that I am excited about as well. Check out the samples below.

Next week October 22, 2016 I will be in Houston Texas performing with Kuumba Frank Lacy and David Lee Jones for their Forest Brook High School Class of 76 40th Reunion. I am always excited to come home to H-Town. I am looking forward to seeing old school mates and some of us getting together to play some music again!
The month of November will be exciting as well! Sunday, November 6, 2016 I will be performing for the New York Marathon with Keith “The Captain” Gamble and the Nu Gypsies. On November 17 I will be performing at the U. S. Mission to the United Nations for their annual Edward R. Murrow conference for journalists around the world.
The full Intimate Journey Project is slated for an early 2017 release . It has been a long labor of love but I am very excited about the results. I am honored to be working with some excellent artists who are giving me a hand with the production. First, I want to thank Contemporary Jazz Saxophone Star Walter Beasley for his incredible artistry on Reasons. Other artists include drummers and drum programmers Victor Wise and Jermaine “Beat Down” McQueen from my old group BluSyde. Andrei Carriere and Alva Nelson have laid down some funky rhythm guitar and keyboard to a couple of tracks. Billy “Spaceman” Patterson is making some incredible contribution on guitar as well. Grammy Award winning producer Jeff “The Jedi Master” Jones will be bringing his awesome mixing and mastering skills to the production. There are some amazing contributions from producer/arranger Gerald Trottman! There will be others added to the mix as well. So stay tuned. Thanks for your patience. The Intimate Journey continues! God is Good!
