Trumpeter Bobby Lewis
Start Date/Time: Saturday, March 11, 2017 5:00 PM
Description:
    A master of both trumpet and flugelhorn, Bobby Lewis has an enviable recording and performance history. Brad Walseth of www.jazzchicago.net suggests that Bobby is “perhaps the most lyrical horn player in the world.”  And Howard Reich has written, “Imagine the ardently lyric lines of Harry James, the hushed melodic poetry of Chet Baker, the impeccable good taste of Bobby Hackett, and you have the sources and the basic vocabulary of Bobby Lewis’ work.”

He has performed with all the great jazz musicians from Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, and Frank Sinatra to Benny Carter, Maynard Ferguson, and Jack Teagarden. Peggy Lee described Bobby as having “a sound like no other...I like him best when he plays in pastels, but every note is beautiful and loving. Bobby loves life as he loves music."

As a first call full time recording studio musician, Bobby logged over 7500 recording sessions (TV and radio commercials, records, and films).  Bobby Lewis is a producer of 11 CD recordings featuring creative musical interpretations of jazz standards, latin tunes, and melodic originals by Bobby and his band members.
