Jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis says, in part, he can thank a coffee shop waitress for pointing him toward the song that helped make him a household name. In his own words, Lewis talks about the transformative effect of 'The In Crowd' that hit number 5 on the Billboard pop charts 50 years ago this month.
