Ramsey Lewis Trio: Summer Breeze

We recently lost jazz great Ramsey Lewis. Ramsey has always been one of my favorite players. In this clip, the trio performs an excellent rendition of the Seals & Crofts classic, “Summer Breeze.” The track appears on the album Solar Wind, which dropped in 1974.

Bassist Cleveland Eaton is seen here holding down the bottom for the trio and also plays on the album. Do yourself a favor and check out the catalog of Ramsey Lewis, you won’t be disappointed.

RIP Ramsey. Take your rest.
