Unadorned Trumpet Carols Cover

Unadorned Trumpet Carols

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.

Celebrations

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).

Unadorned Trumpet Hymns CD Cover

Unadorned Trumpet Hymns

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.

Spiked Eggnog CD cver

Eddie Lewis is the musical director of a ten piece jazz ensemble called Jazz Forever. Not only does he perform with the band, but he also conducts and writes all of the arrangements.

A Not So Distant Past CD

A Not So Distant Pass

El Paso has a wonderful jazz community and Eddie Lewis considers himself blessed that he was able to “grow up” musically speaking in that environment.

A Not So Distant Pass is an El Paso jazz reunion. Eddie teamed up with his buddies from the 80’s to record some of his original jazz tunes and a few free improvisations.

Vintage Trumpet Treasures CD

Vintage Trumpet Treasures

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.
