The Chicago Tribune's Howard Reich talks with Ramsey Lewis on the occasion of Lewis' 80th birthday--with beautiful photos by the Tribune's Zbigniew Bzdak. 
Ramsey Lewis seats himself at the Steinway grand in the living room of his downtown home, opens his score, ogles it, then unfurls a series of expansive, gorgeous chords.
