Includes the complete Argo albums "The Ramsey Lewis Trio in Chicago" -the last LP ever recorded at Chicagos historic Blue Note Club, recorded a couple of weeks before it was closed. Plus "Stretching Out," both recordings featuring the pianists classic trio and appear for the time ever on CD.
A simple trio, piano, bass and drums and yet the sound is so much more. Know for their more mellow brand of jazz, this double program shows a more dynamic side. Never one to jump out front and grandstand Ramsey is content to stay within the lines and play nice. And he makes it work for him and us as well. A relaxed cover photo, although obviously posed, still makes the trio look comfortable and natural. Just like their music.
