Webster Lewis
Webster was born in 1943 in Baltimore, Maryland, and studied at the New England Conservatory of Music under Gunther Schuller. He started out in jazz working with Tony Williams, George Russell, Bill Evans, Stanton Davis, and the Piano Choir. His first release was Live at Club 7, issued in 1971. He signed with Epic Records in 1976 and began releasing disco music, where he found commercial success. He had two charting singles, 1977's "On the Town/Saturday Night Steppin' Out/Do it With Style" and 1980's "Give Me Some Emotion".
Lewis worked extensively as a session musician and studio arranger, for Herbie Hancock, Barry White, and others. He also produced for such artists as Gwen McCrae and Michael Wycoff. He later branched into soundtrack work for film and television, including for the films The Hearse and The Sky Is Grey. In 1963, Lewis co-founded Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc., which is part of the National Pan-Hellenic Council. Lewis died in 2002.
