Coltrane, Miles, Monk and Me: Lewis Porter – Pianist and Jazz Scholar

Lewis Porter, pianist, keyboardist, and composer, appears on 30 albums with Dave Liebman, Marc Ribot, Gary Bartz and many others, and his 2018 album Beauty And Mystery features John Patitucci, Terri Lyne Carrington, and Tia Fuller. His latest is Solo Piano on the new label Next To Silence. AllAboutJazz writes that Porter’s music draws from many sources to make “a beautifully creative whole» and that he is “a first-rate pianist,» to which NYC Jazz Record adds that he has “a mind-boggling array of approaches at his …fingertips.” He has performed across the USA and Europe with Liebman (who premiered one of Dr. Porter’s saxophone concertos), Joe Lovano, Wycliffe Gordon, Ravi Coltrane, Ribot, and many others.

Awarded a Ph.D. in musicology in 1983, he is well-known as a jazz educator, researcher, and author, most notably of a celebrated book on John Coltrane. A long-time former music professor at Rutgers in Newark and at Tufts U, he also taught at The New School, The Manhattan School of Music, NYU, William Paterson U, and Brandeis, as well as being a guest teacher throughout the USA and Europe. He also teaches private students worldwide by Skype. Please follow him at Lewisporter.com and on Facebook.
