Ramsey Lewis – Love Notes


A great little album of mid 70s funk from Ramsey Lewis – very much in the mode of his Earth, Wind, & Fire related work – no surprise, since the album’s dedicated to Charles Stepney, whose influence was such a key part of the sound of the group, and of some of Ramsey’s other Kalimba-produced albums from a few years before! Ramsey plays Fender Rhodes, mini moog, and Arp – and he gets help on keyboards from Stevie Wonder and Derf Reklaw, who also plays saxes and percussion on the set. Features versions of Wonder’s “Love Notes” and “Spring High”, plus Reklaw’s “Chili Today Hot Tamale”, “Shining”, and “Stash Dash”.
