One of his latest works, Taking Another Look, saw Lewis continuing to reinvent his iconic sound.Interestingly enough, the deluxe edition of Taking Another Look features alternate takes on the songs from the album. One of the bands featured on the album was TAUK, the progressive instrumental fusion quartet based out of Long Island. “We are honored to be a part of this new record. Ramsey Lewis is giant in the Jazz community and beyond. It cannot be overstated how much his music has influenced musicians around the world for his entire career, all of us included. His music is meaningful, has soul, and has lasted the test of time. There is no one, and will never be another like him.”TAUK put their unique spin on the composition “Sharing Her Journey,” transforming the jazz classic in true TAUK fashion. Though the deluxe album was released last year, it will make its way into the digital realm this Friday!To get you excited for this new release, we have the honor of premiering TAUK’s take on this Ramsey Lewis track.

So, I’m pleased that the game has moved decisively.”SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster said they would now be able to make end-of-season payments to clubs by the end of this week.He described the payments as a “lifeline” to many teams in the lower divisions.After Dundee’s vote in favour of the resolution, Premiership standings will be decided on a points-per-game basis if the league’s board decide the remaining games cannot be played.The Premiership, which Celtic lead by 13 points from Rangers, will not be called off until April 23.That is the earliest date UEFA would accept the abandonment of top divisions to avoid the possibility of being barred from European competitions.Second-placed Rangers and bottom side Hearts, who would be relegated, had both criticised the SPFL’s handling of the vote over ending the season.Reuters/NAN.

The Athens Archaeological Society has denied recent press reports that archaeologists have discovered part of the throne of Agamemnon, king of Mycenae.In a letter to the Greek culture ministry, the society’s general secretary Vassilis Petrakos, who is also supervising excavations in Mycenae, in the north-eastern Peloponnese, said that claims by fellow archaeologist Christofilis Maggidis, who is field director of the dig, are unfounded.He said that a team of experts had been sent to the site to examine the findings, a 50-kilo slab said to be part of the ancient king’s stone chair, and dating back to the last historical phase of the palace at Mycenae. The team concluded that there was no scientific evidence to back Maggidis’ claim.The shape of the finding, the experts said, suggests it was more likely part of a household or craft utensil.Petrakos said the allegation marked an “unfortunate, if not deliberate, scientific diversion”.The Mycenaean civilisation flourished in the late Bronze Age, from the 15th to the 13th century BC. Its influence spread throughout the Peloponnese but also across the Aegean, Crete and the Cycladic islands.Agamemnon was commander-in-chief of the Greeks in the Trojan War, as recounted by Homer. Although a mythical figure, Agamemnon may have been a reflection of an actual king.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram read more
