101: “Slippin’ Into Darkness” by The Ramsey Lewis Trio

Glasses + Turtleneck = Kick Your Ass With StyleHere’s one of the best covers out there of WAR’s classic “Slippin’ Into Darkness” by jazz piano/keyboard great Ramsey Lewis and his trio.

This hard-working brother, born in 1935, has recorded over 80 albums throughout his career.  At that pace, he’s probably recorded two more since breakfast yesterday.

Ramsey’s first album dropped in 1956, and last year he put out a new one, Ramsey does Ramsey.  This tune is from Upendo Ni Pamona (1972). If you don’t know it, I’m glad I could share.

Enjoy.
