What a great evening everyone had at Jazz Alley with Ramsey Lewis and Philip Bailey on May 22. In all my years of going to Jazz Alley, I’ve never seen or heard a crowd so involved with an act – dancing and  singing along during most of the set.


Ramsey came on first with his Electric Band, starting off the gig with Tequila Mockingbird,  Coltrane and Philip Bows ballads. The great slow and easy songs segued into a couple of old gospel tunes Ramsey learned in his younger years when he played at his church. He stopped and spoke often to the audience, weaving stories of the tunes they were playing and connecting us all to his craft.    read/see more...
