Renowned in a variety of disciplines (author of THE Coltrane biography and founder of the world’s first jazz history program at Rutgers), virtuoso pianist Lewis Porter steps out of his much in-demand sideman roles and offers an album of his own trio and solo performances. The trio, with double-bassist Joris Teepe and drummer Rudy Royston, perform with power and grace while Porter’s intimate piano solos range from lyrical to pointillistic in this, his auspicious debut for UNSEEN RAIN.
