Ramsey Lewis - Complete Recordings 1960-1962
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
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.
