Live in Chicago
Heart of the Ghost
"Proceeds raised from sales of this recording will go in perpetuity to Black Lives Matter DC, an organization recommended by Luke (www.blacklivesmatterdmv.org). "
Works for Upright Bass and Amplifier
"Works for Upright Bass and Amplifier is an emotionally charged record that deserves a lot of attention. I’m hoping that Astral Spirits, the label that put out the project on cassette in limited quantities, finds a way to release this masterpiece on vinyl one day. - Gabriel Jermaine Vanlandingham-Dunn, Jazz Right Now"
""While Astral Spirits releases remarkable music on a near-weekly basis, this album has truly held its place as one of the best releases of the year." - Daniel Palmer, PostGenre"
Works for Electric Bass Guitar
""Luke Stewart does not mess around. He comes right at you on these five improvised solo bass tracks. While a relatively fresh face in the creative music scene, the DC-based Stewart has been receiving outsized acclaim for the last five years (at least). A member of Irreversible Entanglements, Heroes are Gang Leaders, Ancestral Duo, Six Six, and Blacks’ Myths, this is his first solo effort on electric." -Avant Music News"
Works for Upright Bass and Amplifier Vol. 1 & 2
"A new 2xCD that is a summation of the current solo "Works" catalog from Luke Stewart. Definitely not a "complete" set as there will be much more to come! The double CD compiles the entire Works For Upright Bass Vols 1 & 2 as well as "Works For Pioneer Works" (from his recent split Cassette with Patrick Shiroishi on Profane Illuminations, 2021)."
Luke Stewart's Silt Trio
"“I approached the recording session as closely as possible to playing a set, arranging the sequence with that in mind,” says Stewart, who was born and raised in Mississippi. “Like a set compositions are coupled by moments of free improvisation, but that free improv is contextualized by what happened before and after. It’s a journey, and the recording session reflects that.” -Luke Stewart"
We Were Here Before
Mark Cisneros / Nik Francis / Luke Stewart
"Catalytic Sound continues its Catalytic Artist Album fundraising program by releasing CAA-032 to the public, a recording by the trio of Mark Cisneros, Nik Francis, Luke Stewart, called We Were Here Before, Parts I and II. They have suggested that all donations received from the sale of this digital album should go to Empower DC (www.empowerdc.org), which since 2003 "has advanced racial, economic and environmental justice by investing in the leadership and organized political power of DC’s lowest income residents and communities.""
"Six Six is the Washington, DC duo of Anthony Pirog (The Messthetics) and Luke Stewart (Irreversible Entanglements, Blacks' Myths). Their long-awaited recorded collaboration delivers two slabs of serenity and storm."
Days To Be Told
"This is not a music built with drama or dependent on punch lines for its engagement with the listener. It is an album born of a modern jazz that knows its days are numbered, but not necessarily in any recognizable sequence. It is a walking daydream of precision-discipline and grit. A moment in movement captured in a recording studio in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn on an early autumn afternoon, Days to be Told is an opportunity to listen with artists who are playing the miraculous precision of hearing as a tool for social reconstruction and planetary rebirth." -Thomas Stanley "
