Polaris – Grace Kelly & ELEW Jam
ELEW & Grace Kelly ran into each other at an event and an impromptu jam took place. Enjoy!
ELEW (Eric Lewis) is a modern day pop artist and musical revolutionary, making a substantial impression on the music world with a thunderous new style of playing: an inspired melding of ragtime, rock and pop that he calls Rockjazz.
He has toured the world, recorded, and performed continuously with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Elvin Jones, Roy Hargrove, and Cassandra Wilson, among others. He won the 1999 Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition, his mesmerizing piano theatrics even then hinting at the new musical paradigm he would one day create.
ELEW’s new record, ELEW Rockjazz Vol. 2, continues the grand tradition established by his debut album three years ago, showcasing twelve inimitable covers of songs by artists as varied as Michael Jackson, U2, and Joe Henderson, as well as two original compositions. A hypnotic alchemical stew of disparate musical styles and artistic inspirations, Rockjazz Vol. 2 blends multiple piano inspirations to form an album that is cohesive, infectious, and like nothing else on the musical landscape. The album was released on August 28, 2012 and is available on ITunes, Amazon, Google Play and all other major digital retailers.
