Taking Another Look – Deluxe Edition

Ramsey Lewis and his Electric Band,  Taking Another Look Deluxe Edition

The three time Grammy® award winner's 80th album, is entitled “Taking Another Look – Deluxe Edition” featuring a new electric quintet with Henry Johnson on guitar, Michael Logan on keys, Joshua Ramos on bass and Charles Heath on drums. On the twelve song CD, Lewis rekindles his 1974 career-defining album “Sun Goddess” through a collection of re-recorded tracks from the original disc perfectly balanced with five new tunes. “Jungle Strut” has all the attitude of its 1974 original and Lewis makes magic on the Fender Rhodes in “Tambura.”

And rather than re-recording the title track “Sun Goddess”, Lewis has beautifully re-edited the original studio recording featuring Earth, Wind and Fire. Lewis and his Electric Band breathe new life into classic covers, such as the new high octane rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “Living For The City” and a tender interpretation of the timeless “Betcha By Golly Wow.”

"I've recorded maybe 70-80 albums, and this album is definitely among the top five" said Lewis. The Deluxe Edition title refers to the three bonus tracks. First,the legendary Dr. John serves up some Cajun style funk with his rendition of "Jungle Strut" and then up and comers and jazz fusion funksters Kung Fu turn in a mesmerizing version of "Tambura". Finally, TAUK delivers an amazing take on "Sharing Her Journey" that clearly establishes them as a band to watch.

These tracks will help reach an audience beyond Ramsey's loyal fan base that includes today's jazz influenced jam band scene.
