Vic Lewis - A Celebration of West Coast Jazz

Availability: In Stock



The idea for this special double CD presentation of contemporary West Coast jazz came from Vic as a special celebration, not only of the music, but also of Vic's 75th birthday - July 29th 1994. It is another highlight in a career in jazz music which dates back around sixty years! Well, Vic is still sprightly and bears his age with dignity and good humour. Above all he has never lost his love of the music and never loses an opportunity to inject his knowledge and enthusiasm into furthering the jazz cause.

The two separate sessions presented here were made in 1993 and 1994 respectively. They are each equally fascinating in their own right. The earlier session featured five reeds and the 1994 date had five brass, providing wonderfully rich textures to the arrangements specially written to showcase the lush trombone of Andy Martin.
