Aaron "Professor Louie" Hurwitz
The forces of Rock-n-Roll soon brought Hurwitz in contact with Rick Danko and Levon Helm who were at the time reforming The Band. Professor "Louie" and Garth Hudson began collaborating on various projects throughout the eighties. After spending many fruitful sessions with Hudson in Levon Helm's remote recording studio in Woodstock,NY and NRS recording studios, Professor "Louie" decided to make the move upstate himself. It was there where he and his writing partner "Miss Marie" (Marie Spinosa) came together every Thursday night in Helm's studio with great musicians and formed the group The Crowmatix.
During the 90's, Professor Louie had the distinct honor of co-producing and
engineering the three Band albums
High On The Hog,
At the same time he started pairing up with the late Rick
Danko for a string of live performances. The two musicians were a natural
musical coupling and the shows are legendary among the Danko and Louie
Professor Louie's 2000 album Over the Edge
with The Crowmatix comes on the
heels of Rick Danko's 1999 Breeze Hill release
Live On Breeze Hill, on
which Professor Louie sings, plays and also produced.
