Ramsey Lewis Quintet
Jazz legend, NEA Jazz Master, and triple Grammy Award-winner and Ramsey Lewis has been an iconic leader in the contemporary jazz
movement for over 60 years, with an unforgettable sound and outgoing personality that has allowed him to cross over to the Pop and R&B charts.
Lewis earned his first gold record, as well as a Grammy Award for Best Jazz Performance, for his swinging version of “The In
Crowd” with the Ramsey Lewis Trio. He returned to the pop charts in 1966 with versions of “Hang On Sloopy” and “Wade In The Water.”
After having played mostly in an acoustic trio for the last fifteen years, Lewis’ latest endeavor has him returning to his electric roots with Henry Johnson on guitar, Tim Gant on keys, Joshua Ramos on bass and Charles Heath on drums. Lewis and his electric quintet breathe new life into classic covers and timeless Ramsey Lewis classics.
