Jazz Under the Gantries: Greg Lewis

Jazz Foundation of America and Gantry Plaza State Park present a new jazz summer music series: Jazz Under the Gantries. On August 3, Jazz Under the Gantries presents Greg Lewis. Hammond B3 organist Greg Lewis has so devoted himself to the mastery of his instrument that he is known as an “organ monk.” Lewis is a mainstay on the city's jazz, blues and funk scenes. His “encyclopedic knowledge” of pianist/composer Thelonious Monk’s repertory was seemingly made for the conception of Lewis’ Organ Monk CD trilogy in which he transfers Monk’s compositions (plus a few originals) to the Hammond B3 organ. Howard Mandel wrote of Lewis: "He's possessed with making music that flies.”
