About Curtis Lundy
Curtis Leon Lundy is an accomplished bassist of the younger generation of artists who are carrying on the jazz tradition. A disciplined technician from Miami, Florida, Mr. Lundy began his musical career in the all miami youth jazz band. At the University of Miami he was classically trained under the tutelage of renowned bassist Dr. Lucas Drew. He has also studied privately with Jaco Pastorius and Ron Carter.
Lundy’s remarkable sense of jazz time allows him to play the most difficult of all jazz songs for musicians. From the start of lundy’s professional career to the present time he has performed with an impressive list of musical wizards, including: Art Blakey, Pharoah Saunders, Freddie Hubbard, Jon Faddis, Hilton Ruiz, Eddie “”lock.jaw” Davis, Phyllis Hyman, Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Lionel Hampton, Betty Carter, Sonny Stitt, John Hicks, Woody Shaw, Joe Henderson, Sonny Fortune, Dizzy Gillespie, Johnny Hartman, Phineas Newborn, Bobby Watson, Bobby hutcherson and many others.
Eric Robert Lewis (aka ELEW) is an innovator, musical revolutionary and unmatched performer. Fusing traditional jazz with elements of modern rock and pop, ELEW’s masterful originals and blistering re-interpretations have ignited the interest of the country’s tastemakers and those in the cultural know. But more than this, he possesses that ineffable spark that we only associate with true genius. Everything that he creates bears his singular mark—the stamp of something that we have never seen or heard, but have always wanted to feel.
A native of Camden, New Jersey, ELEW began his musical studies at a young age. After being granted a full scholarship to the Manhattan School of Music, he set his sights toward making noise on a grand scale. Upon graduation, he toured the world, recorded, and performed continuously with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Elvin Jones, Cassandra Wilson, Roy Hargrove, and Joe Henderson among others.
1999 offered a formal confirmation of what was rapidly becoming clear when ELEW won the Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition. It’s a contest that goes beyond simply rewarding musical proficiency, instead recognizing the elusive combination of knowledge, command, passion and expression that define a true piano master.
Today, ELEW has created a riveting new sound that is at once fresh and classic. In the jazz tradition of interpreting popular tunes of the day, much like Art Tatum and John Coltrane, ELEW manipulates and performs renditions of rock and pop songs by today’s top artists. A musical contortionist, his compositions twist, turn, and careen between styles, sounds, and emotions, resulting in a stunning aural experience. His new style is becoming so popular that his gigs are beginning to extend into the realm of film industry, opening new doors for his talent to be recognized.
