DER US-AMERIKANISCHE JAZZPIANIST RAMSEY LEWIS IST GESTORBEN

13.09.2022 Der am 27. Mai 1935 in Chicago (Illinois) geborene Jazzpianist und -keyboarder Ramsey Lewis (Bild) ist am 12. September 2022 ebenda gestorben. Ramsey war Ă€usserst erfolgreich auch in den Bereichen Soul, Rhythm-and-Blues und Pop-Jazz unterwegs. Er gewann drei Grammys: fĂŒr das Album "The In Crowd", fĂŒr "Hold It Right There" und "Hang On Sloopy". Ramsey Lewis war zudem ein bekannter Radio-Moderator, zunĂ€chst auf dem Chicagoer Smooth-Jazz-Sender WNUA mit seiner Show "Legends of Jazz", in der er ab 1990 berĂŒhmte Jazzmusiker auch in Interviews und Live-Aufnahmen vorstellte. Andrian Kreye von der "SĂŒddeutschen Zeitung" nennt Ramsey Lewis "einen der erfolgreichsten Jazzmusiker aller Zeiten".

Ramsey Lewis, Chicago-Born Jazz Great Who Continually Evolved, Dead at 87

“Ramsey’s passion for music was truly fueled by the love and dedication of his fans across the globe. He loved touring and meeting music lovers from so many cultures and walks of life,” his wife Jan Lewis said in a statement. “It was our family’s great pleasure to share Ramsey in this special way with all those who admired his God-given talents.”

Those admirers were legion, dating back to Lewis’ beginnings in the 1950s with the Ramsey Lewis Trio. His biggest hits — “The In Crowd,” “Hang on Sloopy” and “Wade in the Water” — were released in the 1960s but remained fan favorites throughout his long career.

Ramsey Lewis, the pop chart's favorite jazz pianist, dies at 87

Throughout his career, Lewis was the embodiment of jazz crossover. His affinity for gospel and blues tunes melded seamlessly with easygoing, unfettered forays into the rock and soul standards of the 1960s — a transaction that yielded major dividends with a trio album recorded at Washington D.C.'s fabled Bohemian Caverns in 1965. The title track of that album — "The 'In' Crowd," a cover of Dobie Gray's rhythm-and-blues hit from the previous year — made its own leap into the charts, spending 16 weeks on the Billboard Top 100 and rising as high as No. 5. The album spent 12 weeks in the top spot among best-selling R&B albums.

Schmerzfrei

Wenn man seine Lebensleistung als Jazzpianist in einen kurzen Moment packen will, dann ist es dieser Anschlag, der mit jeder Note sagte "Funky!". Die Härte, die mikroskopischen Verzögerungen und Beschleunigungen, die Fähigkeit, das jederzeit in der Wohligkeit von Popharmonien aufzulösen, machten ihn zu einem der erfolgreichsten Jazzmusiker aller Zeiten.
