"Praise the Lord I Have Music": A Ramsey Lewis Celebration
Episode 8
Friday, 26 May, 2023

With a career spanning six decades and over 80 albums to his credit, NEA Jazz Master and multiple GRAMMY® winner Ramsey Lewis is one of the most distinguished artists of our time. His crossover success as a mainstream artist made him a household name with hits like "The In Crowd" and "Sun Goddess." Yet it is through his last great offering to the world that we learn the depth of this tremendous figure. Published this month, Gentleman of Jazz: My Life In Music is Lewis' posthumously released autobiography which chronicles his incredible journey from the Cabrini-Green Homes of Chicago with a family devoted to music, to his rise to stardom with The Ramsey Lewis Trio and beyond. On the week of Lewis' 88th birthday, Gentleman of Jazz co-author Aaron Cohen and Lewis' wife and closest confidant Jan join Milestones to discuss everything from Lewis' activism and mentorship, to his exceptional work in media. From his connection to artists like Charles Stepney, Minnie Riperton, Maurice White and Stevie Wonder, to his unyielding love for the city of Chicago and the unprecedented breadth of music he produced that helped expand the landscape of jazz forever.  Milestones theme produced by Riley K.
