Ramsey Lewis Jazz Legend Ramsey Lewis has recorded over 80 albums and has received seven gold records and three Grammy Awards in his storied career. In the mid 60’s, Lewis was the nation’s most successful jazz pianist, topping the charts with "The 'In' Crowd" and "Hang On Sloopy". Both singles each sold over one million copies, and were awarded gold discs. Now Ramsey is revisiting these classic records with a very special night.
