Ben Lewis makes a return trip to Studio5!

This incredible pianist makes a return trip to our stage with a program of standard tunes and original compositions.

Ben Lewis, "one of the best kept secrets in Chicago” (Mark Ruffin – Listen Here! Radio) has twice toured as a Jazz Ambassador for the U.S. State Department and recorded with such Chicago luminaries as Matt Ulery, Grazyna Auguscik, Typhanie Monique and Tito Carillo. As founding member and Musical Director for the Lt. Dan Band with actor/bassist Gary Sinise, he's traveled the world performing for troops, veterans and their families. Howard Reich (Chicago Tribune) says his “shimmering pianism” and “go-for-broke energy” are just part of what give Lewis such a singular voice. Check out the video link and then come hear him for yourself!

We'll be recording this performance for Chicago Jazz Live on WDCB, so you'll be part of the studio audience! See you there. -SR
