Ramsey Lewis • Another Voyage

Carrying on in the infectious jazz-pop-soul vein he virtually invented, Ramsey Lewis proves on this 1969 album that categories don’t matter if the groove is right. Featuring guitarist Phil Upchurch on three tracks and the legendary drummer Maurice White shortly before he left Lewis to form Earth, Wind & Fire.

Jazz Moods • Cocktail Party

Review by Stacia Proefrock
The swankiest of the releases in the Jazz Moods series, Cocktail Party combines songs from smooth characters like Benny Goodman, Johnny Mercer, and Jimmy Van Heusen with fun songs by the likes of Jimmy Durante and Fats Waller. The result is both stylish and celebratory, and great background music for whatever soirée you may be hosting.

Gene Harris, Jimmy Bruno, Joey Defrancesco, Ken Peplowski, Kenny Burrell, Monty Alexander, Ray Brown, Scott Hamilton, Tommy Flanagan.
