Eddie Lewis has been doing recording sessions since his first Budweiser commercial in the early 80’s. He has recorded on dozens of other people’s CDs as a side man and is a featured artist on the follow albums. They are listed here in the order that they were released, with the most recent recordings at the top of the page.
First Trumpet Fruits is kinda like a sequel to our Trumpet Quasi Master album. Both albums feature my original trumpet ensemble compositions. The main difference between Trumpet Quasi Master and First Trumpet Fruits is that First Trumpet Fruits features ONLY compositions that I’ve written in the past 18 months. All of the compositions on the First Trumpet Fruits album were composed during my morning “ministry time”. If you’d like to know more about that, feel free to click through and read the details on the dedicated First Trumpet Fruits page.
Unadorned Trumpet Carols is the sequel to our Unadorned Trumpet Hymns album. As with the hymns, these Christmas carols are recorded without any embellishments of any sort. Performing the carols this way has a calming effect that counterbalances the hustle and bustle of the modern Christmas season. And the best news of all is that we have an adult friendly, coloring book that goes with it.
In 2006 Eddie Lewis released a book of 101 trumpet duets titled, Celebrations. As a book, it was the most ambitious project he had ever completed. After three years of composing, he ended up with 165 pages of original music. This CD by the same title, Celebrations, is a recording of 100 of those duets (the distributor we work with has a 100 song limit).
Eddie recorded 49 traditional Christian hymns. This is the music Eddie grew up with, singing in church from when he was just a toddler. The hymns in this collection are completely unembellished. There are no modulations, no jazzed up rhythms, no fancy endings, and not even a grace note. Hymns are powerful melodies that can stand on their own without all the extra fluff.
This is a collection of 44 of Eddie Lewis’ original compositions for various trumpet instrumentations. There are trumpet solos, duets, trios, quartet, quintets, sextets, septets, octets and even one twelve piece work called Trumpets of Jubilee.
Vintage Trumpet Treasures is a collection of turn of the century trumpet duets. It’s Mr. Lewis’ first effort to do a recording project in his home studio. Today, six releases later, it remains his best selling recording. That defies conventional wisdom. It is, after all, just a recording of trumpet duets.
But really, it’s more than just that. This is an album of good, wholesome music. That’s why it continues to sell better than Mr. Lewis’ other recordings.
