This is one of Ramsey Lewis's finest albums! Recorded at Chess in 1968, it is the arrangements and experimentation of the legendary producer Charles Stepney that makes this Chess album (along with other releases by most notably Rotary Connection) essential. As well as a killer "Maiden Voyage" and the deep "Eternal Journey" you also have the original version of Rotary Connection/Minnie Riperton's classic "Les Fleur". If you don't have this album buy it now!
