CD Reviews

Good but not brilliant
Siriam | London United Kingdom | 05/31/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Ramsey Lewis is without doubt a very talented pianist and arranger as his later 60s output demonstrates fully and he continues to record regularly still. This club recording recorded in 1964 before he moved from Verve to Chess Records is fine in showing the type of groove club jazz at that time aspired to but rarely hit. Ramsey's trio with Eldee Young and Red Holt hits the button many times but what dates the whole shebang is the material with a medley of West Side Story and other show songs dominating. All done very well and with the audience clearly enjoying themselves but for me it is when he gets the group playing "Something you got" and "My babe" that the signposts of what was to come over the rest of the decade start being signposted by Ramsey Lewis. Not surprisingly the rest of the trio were not able to make that journey with him, lasting just one more LP "Hang on Ramsey" being interestingly another live club recording."

"This is one of my favorite Lp's that I play a lot and it was time to upgrade to cd. Back in the early to mid sixties I loved going to clubs and hearing trio's and such groove like this. It's a winner."
Ramsey's best music

"Ramsey's older music....when he first started his best. I like his music of the 60's 70's better than when he started adding backup singers, large instrumenal orchestration and religious stuff. There is nothing like him, his drummer and his bass-man!!"
