From Billboard - July 6, 1968: Ramsey Lewis' nifty translations of the pop idol into jazz have tabbed him an innovator who has drawn together the pop-jazz gap. His latest LP, another unique treat to a unique jazz personality, features the title tune "Maiden Voyage" and versions of "Mighty Quinn," "Do You Know The Way To San Jose" and "Afro-Boogloo Twist" – all revived by the Ramsey Lewis beat and piano improvisation, and the best-selling Ramsey Lewis Trio.
