Curtis Lundy originally from Miami, has been part of the New York jazz scene dating back to 1978. Curtis's work in Betty Carter's band with fellow rhythm section partners drummer Kenny Washington and pianist John Hicks.(The Audience With Betty Carter - BetCar 1979) brought him instant recognition as a player with "something special to say".
Curtis further went on to work with Art Blakey, Johnny Griffin , Freddy Hubbard, Pharoah Sanders, John Hicks, Wynton Marsalis, the George Coleman Octet, Charlie Persip's big band, Louis Hayes,Clark Terry, Sam Rivers, Dameronia, the 29th Street Saxophone Quartet and the Savoy Sultans. His unique abilty to make the music "swing" so effortlessly in the tradition of the great bassists of the past along with his beautiful tone and lyrical soloing has made him a much sought after sideman. With 2 successful solo releases (Against All Odds, Purpose - Justin Time) Curtis Lundy remains one of the most spirtually uplifting bassists on the jazz scene today.
He is featured on the G-THREE recording “SWIFT” with Billy Robinson on sax, Stacie McGregor on piano and Billy Hart on drums. He can also be heard performing regularly with his sister, vocalist Carmen Lundy.
