It was a rainy, jazzy night last night at CRC. The legendary Chicago studio was transformed into a jazz club this past Thursday night in honor of Ramsey Lewis’s latest CD release. After hearing the formidable jazz trio perform a six song set it occurs to me that all Jazz musicians should perform in recording studios on a regular basis. The acoustics were well suited to the gorgeous Steinway, she purred like a cat. And what a pleasure to this beautiful instrument tamed by a Jazz master. Ramsey plays like a young man. Kicking off the performance was another Chicago legend, Bill Kurtis. He spoke for a bit to introduce Ramsey. That guys voice is unbelievable, no matter what he’s talking about, you’re just drawn in.
