Biography & Memoir • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Dion Graham's brisk pacing works well to invite listeners into the energetic life and career of jazz icon Ramsey Lewis. Delivering Aaron Cohen's foreword, Graham's tone is reverential, and he also brings Lewis's own first-person chapters to life. Graham's deftly modulated performance celebrates the musician's remarkable story and long career without fawning or overselling. After taking classical piano lessons as a youngster in 1930s Chicago, Lewis became well known in jazz but also worked in other genres, including classical. In 1965 he won a Grammy for Best Jazz Performance. The beloved music legend and family man died in 2022. This audiobook defines an important American musician who made major contributions to twentieth-century jazz. T.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
