Last May, I had the opportunity to see Ramsey Lewis perform at Scullers’ Jazz Club in Boston and reviewed the performance.
Last night, I saw Ramsey Lewis perform again. This time at New York’s legendary Blue Note Jazz Club in Greenwich Village. My Dad also accompanied me to the performance and enjoyed it immensely.
Unlike the Boston show, Lewis was leading a quartet instead of a quintet. They performed selections from Duke Ellington and The Beatles as well as an extended medley from the classic Brazilian film Black Orpheus. Lewis also performed his classic hits “Sun Goddess” and “The In Crowd”.
2015 marks the 50th anniversary of Lewis’ version of “The In Crowd” hitting the charts. Although he is nearing 80, Lewis remains a sharp performer and is actively touring.
If you’ve never attended a jazz concert before, the music of Ramsey Lewis is a great place to start.
