"The In Crowd" (Vinyl)
Released in 1965, this album was recorded in front of a live audience over three nights' performances at the Bohemian Caverns in Washington, DC.
Ramsey Lewis is another one of those jazz pianist/composers that even the average music-listener owes a debt of gratitude. Unbeknownst to most of us, we actually know Lewis' tunes. Such is the story with the lead-off track (which is also the album's namesake.)
I know this tune, and I didn't know I knew it!
This album is a lot of fun to listen to. Even if it is at low volume while you're waiting for your out-of-town guests to wake up so you can get breakfast...
