A hokey title, but a nice little set – one of Stan's under-rated cookers for his own Creative World label from the 70s!

Serious compositional material by John Lewis – a series of work based upon the Italian tradition of commedia dell'arte, written for a larger group of brass instruments – and given a real "classics meets jazz" sort of vibe – but also handled with a gentle swing, too! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1976. Very Good ... $9.99
One of the hardest-jamming fusion records we've ever heard from mid 70s CBS – a blistering mix of fast guitar, tight drums, and spacey keys – all punctuated by some organic percussion on congas from Mingo Lewis himself!

The cover of this one might make the album one of the campiest records on Verve – but the session's a surprisingly great one, with a straighter vocal approach than you'd guess!

Argo, 1959. Very Good ... $5.99
Quite a rare thing for a jazz album of the time – nearly 60 minutes of music on one disc, something that was almost unheard-of in the days of 30 minute sessions!

A great little album of mid 70s funk from Ramsey Lewis – very much in the mode of his Earth, Wind, & Fire related work – no surprise, since the album's dedicated to Charles Stepney, whose influence was such a key part of the sound of the group, and of some of Ramsey's other Kalimba-p ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ramsey and the trio are on the front in tuxedoes, top hats, and tails – but the overall sound of the record is much more in keeping with their soul jazz grooves of the late 50s – not necessarily gentlemanly, but with a worldly appreciation for a variety of styles of music, and perhaps a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
