From VII to be released on Ropeadope later this month by Chicago titan Ramsey Lewis and Urban Knights. Groovy, elastic, effortlessly seeming, full of detail, neat Harper Lee literary pun perhaps, in the title of the track and crucially not too smooth... Lewis of course world renowned for The In Crowd recorded in the Bohemian Caverns 54 years ago. Very tasteful press roll themed drum solo from Charles Heath beginning at the 4 minute mark worth clocking and Heath is the hearth of the matter burning from the beginning. Essential. Lewis’ main theme, that thing he does at 1min and 21secs is a marvel – the surprise and gleam of instant sunshine and then a full on blissed out pitch bent like a rubber band synth solo from Tim (Daddy O) Gant to wig out to.
