Eddie has been active as a studio trumpet player, making hundreds of recordings since the early 1980’s. He has recorded dozens of albums for many different bands. He even recorded an album that won a Grammy in the Tejano category (Little Joe’s Chicanismo). But most of those albums do not feature Eddie. Which is not a problem. He’s not the kind of person that needs to be the center of attention.
But as Eddie matured as a musician, and as a trumpet player, he began making his own kind of trumpet albums. These started off as demo recordings for his compositions, but they eventually grew in popularity and became recognized as albums in their own rights.
Eddie began his trumpet performance career in El Paso, lived for short stints in Chicago and Pittsburgh, then moved to Houston where he has lived since 1988. All of these recordings of Eddie Lewis are from his time in Houston. He did make some professional recordings in El Paso, but we don’t have information about those recordings.
