Welcome to the Michael C. Lewis website. 2015 ended on a high note. I had performances at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, New York University, Providence Rhode Island and of course performances in New York City! 2016 started of with a a performance at one of my New York home bases Cassandra’s Jazz. On January 7th I had the pleasure of performing at the 100th anniversary of the New York Passport Agency.
The excitement continues January 8th and 9th as I will be returning to Harlem’s newest jazz club, “Cassandra’s Jazz” with the Dwight Dickerson Trio. I look forward to a continuing a productive and exciting relationship with Cassandra and Dwight!
On January 11, 2016 I will have surgery to repair a hernia. I will have to take a little time off to recuperate. I am looking forward to my recovery and progressing towards my new release and more great performance opportunities.
The Intimate Journey Project is really starting to come together. 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 announce that Contemporary Jazz Saxophone Star Walter Beasley has made an incredible contribution to the project that I know you will enjoy. Other artists include drummer and drum programmer 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 will be making a 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!
“Reflection” is still getting strong airplay around the globe. Pick up your copy of “Reflection” at CD Baby. If you become a member of the site you can order an autographed copy of “Reflection” directly from me. You will also get to hear samples and give me your input on different aspects of the new project. The music is for you so your opinion counts. Membership does have it’s privileges. Thank you all for your continued support. Be Blessed. MCL
I Need Your Love
