Morning Song – Oh Happy Day

April 21, 2019

In the pantheon of great jazz pianists, Ramsay Lewis has always distinguished himself for his lyricism and the depth of his feel for gospel music. You can hear all of that and more in his sweet and funky, defiant and graceful, uplifting and exultant cover of the most popular gospel song of the past half-century (and official Easter song of this little blog), “Oh Happy Day”, recorded live in 2005 with his home church choir at the J. W. James Memorial A. M. E. Church.

Happy Easter, y’all.
