Ramsey Lewis, the renowned ja-- pianist whose music entertained fans over a more than 60-year career that began with the Ramsey Lewis Trio and made him one of the country’s most successful ja-- musicians, has died. He was 87.

Lewis is revered in ja-- circles for 1960s hits like The In Crowd, Hang on Sloopy and Wade in the Water. He earned three Grammy awards and seven gold records. The trio’s first record in 1956 was Ramsey Lewis and the Gentlemen of Swing.

Lewis died Monday in his sleep at his Chicago home, according to his son, Bobby Lewis.

Always liked both his artistry and professionalism. Dude was a consummate artist. :clap:

Glad that I had a chance to see him in person. My favorite was 'The In Crowd'. While seated in the stands for things like time outs, the Ohio State University band used to always break out with Hang on Sloppy. I always wondered if they got that from him.

soflo^^^hadnt quite made it on the yard winter of ‘74. No doubt it was a great concert.

Btw, were the 70’s the absolute BEST decade for black music and culture in this country? Everything for the last 40 years has been a blur. :(
