This month's free MP3 is "Tango Cool" by Ted Gioia and Mark Lewis.
Inventive. Interactive. Spontaneous. Lyrical. The Mark Lewis Cool Jazz Trio sound is reminiscent of West Coast Cool, with more freedom and a smaller group...
If you love the sound of a contemporary mainstream jazz quartet led by one of the most lyrical and emotionally committed saxophonists of this generation, this CD is for you. Mark's exquisite flute work is also well respresented on this release. A carefully selected mix of standards and originals. 2008.
Think of the sweetest, most tender flute you’ve ever heard. Think of the most intense flute you’ve heard. Then listen to “Above the Sky” to reconnect to your most vivid awareness of this powerful yet delicate instrument. All originals on flute and piano. 2008.
On Mark’s Electronic Music Box, jazz sax master Mark Lewis explores the possibilities of finding the soul of the electronic keyboard to showcase some of his compositions in a range of styles and moods. 2007.
Free download. Though not typical of Mark's jazz music, this single was created to help promote more peaceful times for all.
