ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mark Lewis, better known as “one of the most lyrical and emotionally committed saxophonists of his generation,” dedicates an entire CD to flute and piano. Why? As Mark puts it:

“This album is dedicated to my fans who wait for the one or two times each show, if the music permits, for my flute work.“

Mark Lewis is master of the alto sax, baritone sax, flute and piano; author of over 1400 compositions; and has recorded and produced over twenty albums on various labels. He is an internationally acclaimed jazz artist who combines extraordinary technical virtuosity with unsurpassed integrity and personal expression.

Rotterdam, The Netherlands was Mark’s home base for many years. He toured and played in most of the better clubs throughout Europe, and taught jazz theory and improvised music classes in several music conservatories. Although he performed predominantly original music in Europe, he is also master of a vast repertoire of jazz standards. Mark lived and performed for several years in San Francisco and Victoria, BC as well.

Jazz musicians Mark has performed and recorded with include pianists Mark Levine, Overton Berry, and Ted Gioia; drummers Candy Finch, Eddie Moore and Billy Higgins; bassist David Friesen; saxophonists Johnny Griffin and Art Foxall; trumpet player Randy Brecker; and vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson. He often subbed for Stan Getz and John Handy during his time in San Francisco.

"It’s almost extraordinary the range of things he’s capable of doing. You listen to the guys with the primo recording contracts on the very top labels, and in my opinion, they’re not in Mark’s league."

- Ted Gioia, author “The History of Jazz”
