"This record is a killer, we're playing it a lot at KNKX 88.5"  - Abe Beeson, Evening Jazz host, KNKX Seattle

"A beautiful album by four excellent craftsmen giving life to Mark Lewis's compositions -- the real stars of this show. Listen a couple times; you'll be whistling these captivating melodies, too. - Lynn Darroch, Bright Moments Café host, KMHD Portland

Free MP3 Download of the Month. 

This month’s free MP3 download is a live recording of What is this Thing Called Love, recorded in 2013 when Mark played a live show with legendary pianist Barney McClure at Auburn Wine & Caviar Co. in Auburn WA.  This recording illustrates how life regularly circles around and intersects. Mark played again at Auburn Wine & Caviar in December, and will pass through Palm Springs, where Barney now lives, in January. This song is in the comfort zone for Mark, one of his most frequently called tunes, when he plays jazz standards instead of his own compositions, but this is the first time it has been offered as a free download of the month. We miss Barney.
