You Better Believe Me - Ramsey Lewis - Jean DuShon

Night Time
You Better Believe Me
The Ramsey Lewis Trio
Jean DuShon
Argo LP-750

This is a split album, featuring DuShon on side one with Ramsey Lewis -piano, Eldee Young - bass, Red Holt - drums, Ronald Wilson - alto saxophone - flute and Roland Faulkner, guitar. And side two featuring just the trio performing instrumentals.

From the back cover: Jean DeShon is making her second recorded appearance on ARGO. Her first album, which rapidly drew rave reviews and many plays from disc jockeys throughout the country, was recorded last summer. This album can only help to add to the well-deserved praise and recognition that her first ARGO effort won for her.

I was drawn to the cover photo which struck me as curiously informal. Whether planned, or not, the vibe one side one also sounds "informal" which could be due to how the recording was engineered. The album was recorded at Universal Recording Studio, Chicago, Illinois, on December 19, 1964 and January 14, 1965).
