Lewis/Gregory/Wiltrout Release New CD "First Takes"


Sign in to view read count
The Charleston, SC, based collective trio Lewis/Gregory/Wiltrout is proud to release their debut album, First Takes. The trio consists of Robert Lewis on tenor saxophone, Gerald Gregory on keyboards and organ, and Ron Wiltrout on drums. The album is available on-line through CD Baby and can also be downloaded from iTunes and other portals.

The album is an attempt to capture the free-wheeling spirit of a live club date. All of the tunes were recorded on the first take, with minimal discussion ahead of time. The resulting music is high energy, with very creative and loose interpretations of a mix of originals and jazz standards. The sound has been compared to both Chris Potter Underground and Larry Young's Unity.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
