Northern Soul Classics - Wade In The Water - Ramsey Lewis

Actually, a piece of modern jazz that shows the range of "Northern Soul" from Country singers like Charlie Rich and Roy Hamilton, through to pop singers like Wayne Fontana! This is a classic dancer, not a roll back the carpet, all guns blazing dancer, but one that enables a good dancer to get through the full repertoir of nifty footwork.

This is the best known Norther sound from Ramsey Lewis, but he also did instrumental versions of a lot of sould classics, from Sam & Dave's "Soul Man, through to Dobie Grey's "The In Crowd".
