30 of 30 people found the following review helpful By Oscar's Czerny on 1 Nov. 2000
Format: Audio CD
I first heard a little snatch of Ramsey Lewis on the film Casino and I re-wound the tape so much that this fantastic passage of film and music has been reduced to a fuzzy crackle. I bought this compilation, hoping for something pretty good and I got much much more. The opener 'The In Crowd,' has so much rhythym you can't HELP but dance, Hang On Sloopy with its infectious chorus, Function At the Junction with its amazing peaks of piano jazz glory, inspired covers of Dancing In The Street and Uptight - all transcribed so that the full effect and tune comes shooting through. This isn't full of piano jazz that tapers off into self indulgence; instead what you get is very tight, rhythmical funky jazz. In fact, this album is so damn good it has the dubious honour of being my alarm call on my stereo. Which is saying something.

I love this disc! It really is lively. I am a Jazz fan, but this music crosses over into a lot of of other popular types as well. Try it!

After I had discovered & bought the Ramsey Lewis Trio Christmas CD I wanted 'more' of the RLT fabulous jazz sound & to hear the 'live' versions - yet the crowd don't detract in the slightest & on Sloopy the crowd is fabulous. I feel as if I've really missed out on his music all these years & ever so glad I have now discovered these fine tracks.

As a fan of Ramsey Lewis since the 60s, it was a pleasure to hear these tracks again. The interpretation of the hits of that time are really good - and original. They haven't dated and the sound quality is good.

A music album is normally bought because you like the artist. I like this artist and his music and the compilation of greatest hits is perfect.
