Bohemian Cavern: The "Cave" In '62

One of my favorite Jazz songs is by a Chicago Jazz great, Ramsey Lewis. This rhythmic, toe tapping, hand clapping piece is a song called, The "In" Crowd. One of the best versions of this song was performed in 1962 on Washington, D.C.'s famous U Street (Black Broadway) at a place called, Bohemian Caverns. This version of the song is featured on a cd titled,
20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Ramsey Lewis. Ramsey Lewis would go on to win a Grammy Award for that "Live" recording at the Cavern. Well, enjoy your weekend. As you can see I have music on my mind. Perhaps I will get a moment to listen and enjoy. Peace~
