ELEW (plus support JACOB KARLZON TRIO)

A virtuoso performer with oodles of on-stage personality, American pianist Eric Lewis began his career under the apprenticeship of Wynton Marsalis, Roy Hargrove and Elvin Jones before winning the Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition in the 90’s.  When a record deal failed to materialise, Lewis publicly shunned the jazz world and re-emerged as ELEW with a new project he called ‘rockjazz’.  Reinterpreting contemporary rock songs by the likes of Nirvana and Radiohead his intense explorations of rock music combined heady rock wig outs with delicate improvisations and fiery, take-no-prisoners jazz piano.

Eschewing the piano stool, his boldly flamboyant stage persona took him to sold-out concert halls and earned him a host of celebrity fans that included President Barak Obama, Hugh Jackman and Leo DiCaprio.  Yet despite his crossover success, this bona fide jazz pianist returned in 2016 with a new recording, ‘And to the Republic’ featuring bassist Reginald Veal and drummer Jeff Tain Watts.  ELEW’S return to jazz presents a striking showcase of the trio dynamic featuring hearty swing, harmonic and rhythmic invention, thundering crescendos, plenty of soul and a heavy backbeat.  The ELEW trio does it all quite impressively. This jazz rocks.
