The colours in traditional tweed represent the landscape around each estate, so there could be accents of beautiful purple heather or the yellow of gorse, or it could be a flash of red. We still present traditional tweeds, but here we have interpreted a modern version. We blew up the design for a more graphic pattern with a modern, confident edge,' explained Alan Scott, Johnstons of Elgin's Creative Director.

Tongues of miracles
Bird's Basement Once upon a time, Eric Lewis was an up-and-coming jazz pianist, a sideman for Wynton Marsalis, Elvin Jones, and recipient of the Thelonious Monk International Piano competition. A decade into his career, he had an epiphany. The songs he was playing weren't speaking to him the way he wanted them to. On the other hand, there were contemporary rock songs whose lyrics meant the world to him. Lewis re-emerged as ELEW, a revolutionary artist who combines virtuosic skill on the grand piano with an unprecedented openness to pop and rock music.
Jazz pianists have always interpreted popular songs. But at some point, jazz detached from rock'n'roll. ELEW has fused the two and created a new genre, rockjazz. ELEW has interpreted and reenergized songs by Coldplay, Nirvana, Radiohead, the Foo Fighters, The Bravery and Michael Jackson. ELEW treats the grand piano the way a traditional rock front man treats the guitar, with a physical style that includes entering the instrument to pluck the strings directly.
ELEW has provided piano for platinum-selling rapper, Lil Wayne and was Complexions Contemporary Ballet's Composer in Residence. Perhaps the most exciting development in ELEW's evolution is his career as a DJ.
ELEW's fans include Josh Groban (who he supported on Groban's tour of North American arenas), Dave Matthews, Naomi Campbell, Forest Whitaker, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brooke Shields, and Woody Harrelson. He has performed for Google, Fendi, Disney, and Mercedes-Benz. Donna Karan included his music on her app. ELEW has even taken rockjazz to the White House!
Lately, ELEW has been in the film world working on compositions, screenplays and directing. You can find ELEW anywhere from Sundance Film Festival, DJ'ing at clubs, playing piano at A-list private parties, to touring his new album ELEW plays Rosenwinkel: Cubism that recently hit #1 on the jazz best seller charts in the U.S.
This special vault session features a recording of the band performing at Bird's Basement in 2019.
