Ramsey Lewis Trio Live At The Bohemian Caverns

LP (Item 38300) Argo, 1964 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

A killer live set from Ramsey Lewis and his classic early 60s trio – a record that's not nearly as well known as The In Crowd, but every bit as great! Drummer Red Holt and bassist Eldee Young really get in some great elements here – working with Ramsey's piano in a groove that's far more than the standard trio mode of the time – and much more in a triangulated exchange of energy that's filled with life and joy throughout! Side one begins with a 12 minute "West Side Story Medley" – one that starts slow, but really builds with excitement as the tune rolls on – and other tunes include a version of "My Babe", with some funky cello work by Eldee Young; a soul-stepping take on "Something You Got"; Ramsey's original "The Caves"; and versions of "People", "Fly Me To The Moon", and "The Shelter Of Your Arms". (Gray label Argo pressing. Cover has light aging on the back, along the opening.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Cookin' The Blues
Argo, 1961. Very Good
The genius of Moody! It's an album like this that you need to prove to your friends that Moody was way way more than a simple bopper. The set was recorded live in San Francisco in 1961, and it's got a hip mix of soul jazz, filtered through some modernist ideals, all played by a great little group ... LP, Vinyl record album
