From their first appearance in the Chicago SRO club in the spring of 1957, the Ramsey Lewis Trio was considered, by the public and critics, one of the brightest jazz groups to appear in the jazz scene. Great jazzmen such as Dizzy Gillespie called them A gust of fresh air on the musical scene, and Duke Ellington said they were A bouquet of tonal delight.
