Background:

Born in Chicago, experimental musician and trombone player George Lewis is one of many UCSD music department vets to make his mark on the national scene, alongside contemporaries like Mark Dresser, Anthony Davis, and David Borgo.

In the mid-nineties, he co-founded the UCSD’s Critical Studies/Experimental Practices program, as well as playing a role in the foundation of the local Trummerflora Collective of experimental composers and musicians. In 2002, he was awarded the prestigious MacArthur "Genius" grant.

In 2004, at the age of 50, Lewis moved from San Diego to New York. As of 2010, he heads up Columbia University’s Center for Jazz Studies.
