Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #147

May 14, 2016

We’re continuing the countdown of the albums that have shaped Gilles Peterson so far, this week, the album is Maiden Voyage by Ramsey Lewis.

Released in 1968 on Cadet Records. Jazz composer, pianist and brilliant Ramsey Lewis eases in, and is perfectly paired with Charles Stepney’s brilliant production, constructing a mise en scène that is both playful and alluring. This LP consolidates some fine, incredibly brisk, sensuous works; with Cleveland Eaton on bass, Earth, Wind & Fire’s Maurice White on percussion to make it an irresistible album.
