Ramsey Lewis – Funky Serenity
Funky Serenity was well received by critics who called the album an essential album from Ramsey Lewis. It finds him combining elements of blues, funk, gospel, pop, soul, and even briefly, a hint of the avant-garde. However, Funky Serenity was also a reminder of why Ramsey Lewis was one of the most successful jazz pianists of his generation. The single Kufanya Mapenzi (Making Love) is classic Ramsey Lewis.
