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". (Silver label Argo pressing. Cover has some wear, staining on the back, and a name in pen.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Chance Encounter
Columbia, 1982. Very Good+
Nothing too "chance" about this encounter – as the album's got a very full, carefully put-together approach – completely arranged and produced by Ramsey Lewis himself, but definitely using lessons learned from some of the other top-shelf talents who guided him during his years ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1961. Very Good
In case you think the folks at Chess were putting too fine a point on the earthy origins of Ramsey's jazz, the title's actually one that follows from an earlier album Ramsey cut for Mercury – and features a similar cover of a shovel digging in the dirt! The tracks are a great blend of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dancing In The Street
Cadet, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold
A late 60s groover from the second Ramsey Lewis trio – the one that features Cleveland Eaton on bass and Maurice White on drums, both doing a pretty great job of filling the spot vacated by Eldee Young and Red Holt! The album's a live one, cut in the successful mode of Ramsey's records with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hey It's James Moody
Argo, 1959. Very Good
A magnificent little album – one of James Moody's first collaborations with arranger Tom McIntosh – one of the most sensitive jazz voices of his time. McIntosh works in a world of many tones and colors – and he really pushes Moody past straighter solo approaches, into a mode ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Swingin
Argo, 1956. Near Mint-
One of the first ever albums by the Ramsey Lewis Trio – featuring an assortment of lively tracks with a touch of jazz-based humor, the kind that were winning them huge audiences in Chicago at the time! With Eldee Young and Redd Holt to back him up, Ramsey's got plenty of pyrotechnics in tow ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cole Slaw
Argo, 1964. Very Good
Poppa Lou in a straight soul jazz format, recorded in the mid 60's, between his two stints for Blue Note. He's playing here with his solid combo that includes Herman Foster on piano, and they're backed up by Ray Baretto on conga, for a nice rolling groove. Tracks include "Soul Gumbo", ...
