Mark Lewis is a well-traveled alto saxophonist and flutist who has created a vast and intensely stimulating body of music over the past four decades, and enlivened jazz scenes from Seattle and San Francisco to Rotterdam and Paris. Partnering with a superlative Gotham rhythm section on his gorgeous new album The New York Session, Lewis delivers a tour de force that is helping to redefine his former under-the-radar reputation. The new album, on the Audio Daddio label, features piano legend George Cables, veteran bassist Essiet Essiet, and the supremely swinging drummer Victor Lewis. It’s the work of an artist clearly reveling in the company of fellow masters making the most of his tasty compositions. Catch him in the Washington Center’s intimate Black Box Theater.
