In Crowd

LP (Item 53737) Argo, 1965 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 5

Easily one of the biggest selling jazz albums of the 60s – a crowning achievement for Ramsey Lewis and his popular trio with Eldee Young on bass and Redd Holt on drums! The set was recorded live at the Bohemian Caverns in DC, and the trio are perfect in the setting – going at the numbers with pyrotechnic fury, but always staying in the soul jazz idiom – keeping things nice, tight, and in the pocket! Titles include the group's hit version of "The In Crowd", plus "You Been Talkin Bout Me Baby", "Spartacus", "Felicidade", and "Come Sunday". (Brown label Argo pressing.)  © 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
