Jack Lewis Remembrance

4 posts in this topic

The first post in my examination of Jack Lewis and his tenure as A&R at RCA Victor is now up and viewable at:

https://jazzresearch.com/jack-lewis-west-coast/

Information about Jack was scant on the internet except for a semi-obit that was mentioned on this forum a long time ago. He continued to be active in the music business after RCA let him go at the end of 1956, but his production of albums for RCA remain a benchmark in jazz. My next post will present his East Coast work at RCA.

Thanks as well.  I did a couple of Night Lights shows about the Jazz Workshop albums many years ago and recall not being able to dig up as much info about Jack Lewis as I would have liked.  You do tremendous work, James.

I have concluded my examination of Jack Lewis’ productions as head of A&R at RCA Victor. The last post discusses Rod Levitt’s albums for Riverside and RCA Victor that continued jazz explorations in the spirit of the “Birth of the Cool” sessions with the RCA sides included in Ed Michel’s The Arrangers CD for RCA Bluebird. Here are links to the three posts:
