Ramsey Lewis is a jazz pianist, composer and bandleader who was highly influential in popularising jazz through his crossover chart successes during the 1960s. This 37-track compilation focuses very much on his first recordings, when he was still in his early 20s, mas leader of his highly-regarded trio which stayed together for the first decade of his recording career. The trio, completed by Eldee Young on bass and Redd Holt on drums, enjoyed success with the LPs Gentlemen of Swing, Gentlemen of Jazz, Down To Earth and An Hour With The Ramsey Lewis Trio. The repertoire represents a cross-section of interpretations of standards and original compositions.
