Ramsey Lewis is a prolific jazz composer, pianist. A native of Chicago, Illinois, Ramsey grew up in a musical household. His father introduced him to piano at the young age of four, and his talent was rapidly recognized. The musician was soon playing piano for his father's choir at a local church during Sunday morning services. By 15 he was playing in his first group, The Cleffs, and after the group went their separate ways he formed the Ramsey Lewis Trio, which explored a bebop-inspired jazz sound. The jazz pianist released his debut album, Ramsey Lewis and his Gentle-men of Swing in 1956, receiving acclaim for his sound and following up later that year with a second album titled Ramsey Lewis and his Gentle-men of Jazz. Ramsey has released music consistently. In 1965, Ramsey Lewis's group received acclaim and won him his first Grammy Award for their cover of Dobie Gray's "The In Crowd," introducing themselves to the pop market and expanding their audience. By the 1970s, Lewis furthered his explorations into a pop and R&B inspired sound when he worked with former band member Maurice White (Earth, Wind, & Fire) on his release Sun Goddess. Since then, Ramsey Lewis has explored several genres on his releases, though he remains closely tied with the jazz. He still lives in Chicago and is an active member of the jazz scene in the city and continues to tour and perform. Over the years Lewis has won three Grammy Awards and has had five Gold Records, signifying more than 500,000 units sold. He remains a jazz legend and continues to share his talents with the world.
