Pianist Lewis to Perform at NASCAR Race

Pianist Eric Lewis, formerly of Jazz at Lincoln Center and now with an upcoming solo album/DVD, hasn’t given up jazz for car racing yet, but from the looks of things, it may not be too far in the future.

…So that might be an exaggeration, but nonetheless, Lewis is set to perform the national anthem at the Dodge/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Nextel Cup Series at Sonoma, Calif.’s Infineon Raceway on Sunday. Just about anyone can catch Lewis’ piano performance, as the race will be broadcast at 12:30 PST on Fox. Tickets are still available at Ticketmaster or at www.infineonraceway.com.
