  • Band/Affiliation:
  • Country: United States

As a kid, Victor Lewis studied cello, piano and finally drums, doing his first home town gigs in Omaha, Nebraska at age 15. The youngster was encouraged by such as Buster Williams and Billy Hart to make the move to New York where in 1974 he began a quick ascension to prominence. Clearly out of the Tony Williams school, Victor was the first-call drummer for masters like Joe Farrell, Dexter Gordon, and Hubert Laws and started long-time associations with Woody Shaw, Carla Bley, David Sanborn, Kenny Barron, Bobby Watson, and Stan Getz. One of the leading drummers of our time (who recently appeared in Robert Altman's film "Kansas City"), Victor also has a second reputation as a dedicated composer and smart bandleader.
