About Phil Lewis

Jazz guitarist, composer, and musicologist Phil Lewis was born in New Jersey and educated at Berklee College, the Institute of Audio Research, and UCLA. Over thirty-plus years he has worked with a wide variety of artists ranging from funk drummer Gerry Brown and Latin jazz trumpeter Bobby Rodriguez to arranger Lalo Schifrin and Motown songwriter Lamont Dozier. Since the late 1990s he has focused his energy on producing what has been referred to by some as "melodic jazz" – a style that emphasizes melody and emotion over musical pyrotechnics. His group, the Phil Lewis Quartet, can be heard performing at assorted Southern California venues. Their latest CD, The Bitter Suite is available at CD Baby, iTunes, and Amazon.
