The three-time Grammy-Award winner, seven gold record holder and father of seven Ramsey Lewis has been wooing audiences since the tender age of 21 professionally, but begin taking piano lessons at the age of four, studying the basics and fundamentals. Lewis, one of the nation’s most successful jazz pianists has topped the charts with “The In Crowd,” “Hang On Sloopy” and “Wade In The Water.” Often called legendary, Mr. Lewis concedes “It’s a high honor when someone says so, but I don’t see myself that way. What keeps me enthusiastic and energizes me, is the realization that the more I learn, the more I find there is to know.” He has received the industry award for the 2006 Stellar Award for Best Gospel Instrumental Album, “With One Voice” presented in January 2007. He was also the recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Award in January 2007. Lewis’ most recent 80th collection of songs entitled “Ramsey, Taking Another Look" on Atlantic records.
“Ramsey Lewis is a class act and I’m so happy he will perform at Aaron Davis Hall,” states Aaron Davis Hall’s Managing Director Gregory Shanck. “We’ve had world legends on our stage and this is one more creative giant I’m so proud to have him perform at Aaron Davis Hall”
