‘The sides of Paul’s artistry only get more pronounced from there [”Get Your JAM ON!”], with the following tracks providing a stage for his musical skill as well as his gifts as a poet…. On “Glory, Glory, Glory is For Us All,” Paul and his band, Rivers Answer Moons, turn their mix of jazz and poetry into a kind of reverie ... Everyone shines in their own way on this track, and no one is left in the shadows.... I believe the most striking attribute of Love Over War is its diversity.’

“Alright!” is a jazz album that spans a breadth of musical influences. …

“Carrying The Saxophones”

A range of saxophones play a hearty bluesy motif, that shines with a touch of Gospel. The horns’ lines are smooth and full, allowing listeners to appreciate the qualities of each type. The mood here is not just of cacophonous risk-taking; instead, full ideas bloom in the completion of each measure.

The sound and the rhythm are danceable, but there's no denyng the art of what

Lewis is doing.'

'ALRIGHT! represents not so much a debut, but another cornerstone in a career that is as long, storied, and resplendent as a stone cathedral window…. Lewis shines yet again, adding another jewel in a chest of musical avenues that have already made him such a legend in the canon of New Orleans jazz.’
