1. Product Details

Vinyl LP pressing. Released on Leeds Jazz & Soul label ATA Records the debut LP from The Lewis Express takes the rich legacy of the soul-jazz outfits of the 1960s as the initial blueprint of their sound. Taking inspiration from the likes of Ramsey Lewis Young-Holt Eddie Cano Ray Bryant and Cannonball Adderley they present a collection of tracks that range from introspective spy film themes to burning Brazilian jazz. Recorded over an intense two-day session by the band of the same name The Lewis Express is a nod to the classic soul jazz recordings of The Young Holt Trio / Young Holt Unlimited and Ramsey Lewis from who this group take their name. But delivered with a distinctly European feel. As with many of the classic Ramsey Lewis cuts this album was recorded live capturing the rich inter-relationship between the players and leaving in some of that chunky room noise lending the album a sound thats as thick as a steak and raw as a carrot.
