The Ramsey Lewis Interview

Nat King Cole put his life on the line playing music. He was an inspiration to many a young pianist who saw the way to communicate musically. To break down all the barriers that people put in there way.

Nat King Cole and Oscar Peterson inspired cats like my guest who grew up in Chicago.....which was brimming with the baddest cats around Elliott Randall, Richard Evans, Morris Jennings, Cash McCall, Charles Stepney and an unlimited amount of Young/Holt. These cats contributed to my guests albums, movie soundtracks and live performances at the Lighthouse or the Jazz Workshop.

These melting pot of brethren thrived on commerce based record labels like Chess Cadet which fostered African American roots music like Ahmad Jamal and my guest.

It was a month at the London House growing up with those who were inspired by Monk and Blakey Playing with the late great Cedar Walton.

My guest is an ambassador of music taking his bands from Bahrain to Tucson. He has lived in the Windy City scene developing the groove, the feel keeping the African swing element into the music.....developing relationships within the urban community which fostered the community integral to melodic invention.

My guest has seven children and 14 grandchildren his legacy is cemented and now he will try to pour wisdom and faith into the younger brethren

Just a link in the chain Ramsey Lewis welcome to the JFS.

175 Beatle Jazz with Ramsey Lewis

Play

[powerpress]

An area heretofore unexplored on SATB is jazz: specifically, which artists took raw material from The Beatles and took it in a new direction. It is our good fortune to have within reach a true legend of the idiom: Ramsey Lewis, a multi-Grammy-winning keyboardist whose work spans decades and genres. In late 1968 - mere weeks after The Beatles' "White Album" was released - Ramsey issued a 10-song collection drawing from the Beatles' fresh work. Mother Nature's Son was hailed as a classic, with bold re-imaginings of songs familiar to us fans - but not like this. His reading of "Julia" became a standard in his repertoire, alongside his well-known hit take on "The 'In' Crowd."

Ramsey hosted a jazz show for years on radio, so he is well-familiar with the sonic landscape. But joining us to shed further light is a friend to both me and to Ramsey, going back years: Radio Hall of Fame deejay Terri Hemmert. In addition to spinning records on WXRT since the 1970s until announcing her retirement this year, she also hosted a jazz program for many years (and many of you know her as the MC in Chicago at The Fest for Beatles Fans). Together, listen to these two explore the intersection between Beatles and jazz.

Artists heard in this show:

The Beatles - Ramsey Lewis Trio - Ella Fitzgerald - Count Basie - Duke Ellington - Louis Armstrong - Wes Montgomery - Ramsey Lewis - Esther Phillips - Vince Guaraldi Trio - George Benson - Earth, Wind and Fire - Paul McCartney - Rahsaan Roland Kirk - Fats Domino - John Scofield - Danger Mouse
