Ramsey Lewis - Funky Serenity CBS 1972 Side One: Kufanya Mapenzi (Making Love) If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Want To Be Right What It Is! My Love For Yo. .
Funky Serenity/Salongo. Less than two years after the Super Bird label combined Upendo Ni Pamoja (1972) and Sun Goddess (1974), the R2 label reissued two other Ramsey Lewis albums originally released on Columbia: Funky Serenity (1973) and Salongo (1976). The former is primarily a trio date with bassist Cleveland Eaton and drummer Morris Jennings, featuring material that is both spaced-out (the ten-minute psychedelic trip "Dreams") and relatively organic (a version of the Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin," where Ed Green's violin provides the main melody line).
Salongo is an album by jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis, which was released in 1976 on Columbia Records. The album rose to Nos. 7 & 17 on the Billboard Jazz Albums and Top Soul Albums charts. Salongo was produced by Maurice White and Charles Stepney. Jimmy Bryant - Clavinet. Steve Cobb - Drums, vocals. Byron Gregory - Acoustic and electric guitar. Ron Harris - Electric bass. Ramsey Lewis - Acoustic and electric piano. Derf Reklaw Raheem - Flute, percussion, vocals. George Massenburg - Engineer.
