Ramsey Lewis

Legendary jazz man Ramsey Lewis has had Abraham Lincoln on the brain the past couple of years with the epic "Proclamation of Hope" composition he produced for the bicentennial commemoration for the 16th president (performed here at Ravinia Festival and in Washington, D.C., at the Kennedy Center). Lewis now has '70s funk on his mind after revisiting his gold-selling "Sun Goddess" album (where he worked with Earth, Wind & Fire), and comes to the Genesee Theatre with his Electric Band for the "Sun Goddess" tour.
<br><br><b>
Why go: </b>It's a new group of band members, but they are still performing the hits "Hot Dawgit" and "Sun Goddess."
<br><br><b>
Reconsider: </b>Lewis has created new compositions for this tour, and you know how we can react to change.
<br><br><b>
Details: </b>8 p.m. Saturday at Genesee Theatre, 203 N. Genesee St., Waukegan; $35-$80; 800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com
