Description
In his 70s, three-time Grammy winner Ramsey Lewis continues to be active in the jazz world, but he's also forging ahead with a newly inspired creativity as a composer. This album showcases a remarkably refined collection of 12 new originals. Eight of them come from the score of 2007's ballet To Know Her..., written for the Joffrey Ballet, and four from 2008's Muses and Amusements Suite, debuted with the Turtle Island String Quartet. This is graceful and inspired music, played with a gentle, joyful touch and focusing squarely on melody.

"He has written to his strengths, meaning the balance between straightforward and intricate is pretty near perfect…. Both a perfectly credible jazz album and one with huge appeal for people who think they don’t like jazz."—BBC Music
