On Believe, the song Christina really features Ramsey's bass. I don't see any further credits beyond Chico's 2014 The Inquiring Mind. 

This is before then, but it looks interesting: https://www.allmusic.com/album/between-the-lines-mw0000575249

If this is accurate....he made a Gospel record in 1973: https://www.discogs.com/release/11366003-Professor-Benny-Cummings-And-The-Kings-Temple-Choir-COGIC-Gods-Music-Is-My-Life

On the Thoughts Of... record, he's got a tune called "PJ"...."Praise Jesus"?

Wouldn't be the first guy I know to go back to church music...with the right gig, it pays a helluva lot better than jazz...

I saw a lead that he may have played bass for Kirk Franklin, so if that's the same guy then those may be accurate as well.

Wonderful album by Masabumi Kikuchi, Ben Street and Thomas Morgan on bass and Krestin Osgood on drums

followed by one of the best releasees I've heard in a while.

Ming Bau Set - Yakut's Gallop which is Vera Baumann on vocals, Florestan Berset on Electric Guitar and Gerry Hemingway on Harmonica, Vocals and Drums. 

Absolutely captivating music.

Though in the last few weeks I was listening much more to modal, free, fusion etc, yesterday for my daily hour of record listening I decided to go ALL the way back , to the days of bop. First I thought about some Fats or early Dex etc, but then I said to me better the Mr.B and the Band, since I love B´s voice very much. 

This together with the Spotlite "Together" is the stuff where you really hear the band. 

And those arrangements (Dameron) and chords combined with Mr. B, it´s wonderful. 

A friend of mine who already has passed , also liked this stuff very much, but later bought a lot of the more commercial sides, like that "Billy and Sarah again" , but the big band that plays sounds quite boring to me, kind of routine without a really "brand" like the old band or like "Thad Jones-Mel Lewis" or "TALT" ....

So IMHO this is the best Mr.B for a musician who listens to the instrumentation too. And the solos of stars like Fats, Dex, Jug, KD and so on......, 
The way they interpretate ballads like "Cottage for Sale" "I´m in the Mood for Love" "Without a Song", and listen to the exiting bop stuff they make out of a simple thing like "Jitney Man" , "I like the Rhythm in a Riff" and also the instrumentals of bop classics like "Cool Breeze", "Oo Bop Sh Bam" and "2´nd Balcony  Jumb".
The last side is less interesting, it starts to change into those syrop string things that sounds like old films .....

Blue Moods "Myth & Wisdom" . . . a really nice sounding Mingus tribute album. I think I could have enjoyed another horn alongside the tenor sax, but in this quartet format the music and arrangements did make me think of a Monk influence on Mingus. If you are going to do an album of Mingus material pianist Kikoski is a great choice! Hirahara does a great job as well.
