Ramsey Lewis – Slippin’ Into Darkness (1972)

Sublime electric work from Ramsey Lewis! Ramsey’s working here with his hip 70s group that included Morris Jennings and Cleveland Eaton, and he’s playing some fantastic electric piano – a blend of funky grooves and soulful spiritualism, stripped down into a sound that’s one of his leanest and cleanest of the decade! The album’s got some great funky covers, like “Collage”, “Slipping Into Darkness” and “People Make the World Go Round” – plus the nice groover “Upendo Ni Pamoja”
