"...There are plenty of blunts in Hell, my friends, but there are no lighters.

"...John Lewis Evolution (Atlantic) Composer/arranger and Modern Jazz Quartet musical director John Lewis played piano in the bands of Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, and Lester Young, and has made some fine albums featuring himself on that instrument.

"...Pit whisperer John Lewis was in town last week representing la Barbecue at the Austin Food & Wine Festival and we chatted about his two other business ventures. Austin's barbecue cognoscenti already know about Lewis Barbecue, coming later this year in Charleston, S.C., but there's also Austin Smoke Works, the new custom pit building company he's founded with his buddy Jim Glass and with his dad, retired IBM man John Lewis Sr..."
"...LeAnn Mueller has taken over operation of the business at 1502 S. First and renamed it La Barbecue "Cuisine Texicana"; she's also hired former Franklin Barbecue employee John Lewis to run the pit and his barbecue is just fine, thank you very much..."
"...John Lewis Evolution 2 (Atlantic) With the passing of John Lewis at the end of March, the third and final part of the Evolution trilogy is in question. Yet if this second installment of the series is to be the Modern Jazz Quartet musical director's swan song, it's a gem..."

"...More recently, his harp-and-horn double whammy punched up Big Foot Chester, Eugene Chadbourne, the Crack Pipes, Oblivians, and current band South Filthy, yet what excites him today is working with a young blues shouter named Black Joe Lewis. If it's got anything to do with modern lo-fi blues, Walter Daniels is up front and in your face.Dudes With Farmer Genes..."
"...Turner is Beverly Sutphin, a suburban Baltimore all-American mom with an endless smile and a penchant for murdering those people who stand in her way (sometimes they're not even standing in her way; sometimes they're just… standing there). With a nuclear family made up of hubby Waterston, daughter Lake, and son Lillard (in a typical Waters touch, he's a gorehound -- a full set of vintage Aurora monster model kits deck his bedside wall and Herschell Gordon Lewis posters adorn his room)..."

"...Austin social media was aflame over the weekend with the news, first reported in the Charleston City Paper, that La Barbecue pitmaster John Lewis is opening a Texas barbecue restaurant in Charleston, S.C., next year. Lewis' signature brisket and handmade sausage were such a big hit at the Charleston Brown Water Society's SC-TX BBQ Invitational back in July, he was able to line up investors and find a location in the genteel old port city's Half Mile North development fairly easily..."

"...They bleach her hair and trick her up in their over-the-top garb and make-up, and force her to star in their radical underground movie, which is staged and filmed on the fly during various guerrilla-style actions. The Sprocket Holes are a hilarious crew; each sports a tattoo of the name of cherished director (Warhol, Fassbinder, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Otto Preminger, Spike Lee, Kenneth Anger, and William Castle to name but a few) and spouts slogans like, “Death to the cinematically incorrect,” and “Punish bad cinema” at the drop of peroxide bottle..."

He adapted Sunset Song from Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s 1932 novel..."
"...The move will make it possible for la Barbecue to expand into evening hours of operation and serve patrons from nearby bars such as Stay Gold, Drinks Lounge, and Craftsman. According to Clem, the menu in the new spot will include a variety of special items, "such as smoked duck and different sausages."

"...They turned over a big bucket of smoldering coals, spewing ashes everywhere, and then turned over both of the porta-potties.

"...But in this they need the help of the local conwoman Chel (Perez). It's a scenario you can easily picture being played by Hope and Crosby in any of of their Road to - movies, or by any of the great comedy pairs from Laurel & Hardy to Martin & Lewis..."
"...(Weirdly, the killings aboard the Amistad aren't the issue. Since the rebels are functionally equivalent to livestock they can't be charged with committing murder; the only question is whether anyone has a valid claim on them.) McConaughey, as a real estate lawyer named Baldwin who argues on behalf of abolitionists Theodore Joadson (Freeman) and Lewis Tappan (Skarsgard), has also drawn more than a few raps for his low-keyed performance..."
"...In return, he shaves their heads, buries them in mud and threatens them with live grenades. Philosophically reprehensible, the failure of Major Payne is that director Nick Castle's musical sensibilities are at odds with Wayans' explosive Jerry Lewis potential..."

"...All of the material on Prestige and Pablo is included on this 4-CD set. Musical director/pianist John Lewis blended baroque and prebaroque classical techniques into his music, and if there were times when this sounded precious, any band that featured Milt Jackson, arguably the greatest vibes player of all time, had to be impressive..."
