Arts Commons Presents:
Three-time GRAMMY Award winning musician Ramsey Lewis
CALGARY – Arts Commons Presents a three-time GRAMMY Award winning composer, pianist, and radio personality – Ramsey Lewis - in A Night of Chicago Jazz, on Friday, November 17, 2017 in the Jack Singer Concert Hall.
Celebrating a 50-year career of musical prowess, Lewis’ piano mastery extends beyond genre, from pop-covers, to funk stylings, and even film scores, though through it all, he has always stayed true to his jazz roots.
Ramsey Lewis discovered his love for piano at the young age of four, and worked his way up to his radio smash hit the The 'In' Crowd in 1965. Since then he has recorded over 80 albums, notably performing with Earth, Wind & Fire on their Sun Goddess album, and was personally congratulated on his 80th birthday by President Barack Obama, who said “You’ve filled our lives with music and with joy.”
Joined by jazz singer Ann Hampton Callaway who is known for her smoldering voice, and Grammy-nominated guitarist Henry Johnson, Ramsey Lewis will take you on a night of jazz to remember.
Tickets are available through artscommons.ca or by calling 403-294-9494. Watch him perform with Earth, Wind and Fire and listen to his stand-out classic hit The “In” Crowd.
