Ramsey Lewis, 1935 — 2022

September 14, 2022

Jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis died September 12th, at age 87. His lengthy career took off after a live recording of a 1964 performance at Washington DC’s Bohemian Caverns club was released in 1965. His jazz interpretation of “The ‘In’ Crowd” was a crossover hit, and won a Grammy award (he would win two more). He was accompanied by bassist Eldee Young and drummer Red Holt (they would later form Young-Holt Unlimited). Ramsey Lewis incorporated elements of blues and Gospel music in his playing, and was a major figure in the “Soul Jazz” movement.
