CD Reviews

Maybe his best ever.....
Darnell R. Johnson | Atlanta, Georgia | 10/15/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My fellow Chicagoan Ramsey Lewis is the premier piano jazz musician of all time and this latest release does nothing but confirm that. It is fantastic, the first jazz CD I have ever owned where every song is inspiring!! I love it!!"
What a BRILLIANT album
Steven Clem Haley | Stillwater, Oklahoma United States | 04/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Vague memories of "The In Crowd" were my only connection with Lewis' music- so I am by no means a certified fan.But the music on this take goes way WAY beyond the sterotypical piano-jazz cocktail bar schlock that is so easy to find.As the title and the liner notes indicate, Lewis celebrates the music of his passions on this work. Spiritual/classical with just the right touch of "In Crowd" funk- the mix is just right if not perfect.Highlights of the work are Song for Jan, E Lucevan le Stelle and What Wonderous Love. If Gospel music could ever be considered 'sensual' then this is it. This arrangement is the Song of Solomon set to music.However, the total suprise for me on this cd was Ernie Adams on sticks and tubs. There is a latin pseudo-solo that he accomplishes that is so subtle, so brilliant and so classy that it alone is worth the price of the disc. Consider me a new fan of Lewis as well as Adams"

"I enjoyed this CD., altho I like Ramsey Lewis'other CD's probably better just because I prefer his earlier work. As for the reviewer who wants to find Mother Natures Son..I too, looked high and low for it..since its on of my favorites. I found a wonderful CD with some of the music on it..its called 'Maiden Voyage'...good luck to you"
