Product Description

Product Description

By 1960 Ramsey Lewis and his Trio, while not yet the chart-toppers they would become by mid-decade, were among the hottest live draws on the US jazz circuit. Having already released eight albums, 1960's Stretching Out was their most commercial offering yet, but had a strong improv element that would continue on subsequent records. Its follow up, The Ramsey Lewis Trio In Chicago, was one of the Trio's most satisfying jazz albums, showing the group stretching out a little more than they had during studio sessions. Over the next couple of years the Trio would experiment with show-tunes, country, Bossa Nova and Christmas music, all of it of course in the group's inimitable keyboard-led infectious jazz style. Ramsey Lewis' fortunes were set to change within a few years, but this compilation, containing eight full original albums, all delightfully remastered, illustrates conclusively what a dynamic jazz ensemble The RLT were during the early years of their career.

Much of Ramsey Lewis Trios music sounds distinctly of its time. In the case of the jazz flavoured material, like the first 2 albums here, that gives you great soulful grooves with some fine soloing. In the case of the more commercial material, like most of the rest, you get soulless vocal ensembles, screechy strings, and banal tunes with little improvisation.

Worse, however, is the fact that this "bargain" is dreadfully produced. Dubbed from scratchy vinyl, harshly digitised, much of it is virtually unlistenable. Better, I think, to get a good compilation from the original record label.

Lewis' brand of 'pop-tinged' jazz always worth a listen, and he is a fine musician.

HASH(0x8d789d08) out of 5 stars Pirate Material 27 May 2014
By G. DeF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's a shame that this isn't from "legal' sources. I can go on and on (about the sources) - but this set is not worth the $12 unless you really don't car about sound quality. It's pirate material. (See my review for 1957-1960)
