Sun Goddess is a jazz album by Ramsey Lewis released on Columbia Records in 1974. The album reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top Soul Albums chart and No. 12 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart. Sun Goddess has also been certified Gold in the US by the RIAA. After his classic acoustic albums in the 1960s, Ramsey Lewis wanted to head in a new musical direction in the 1970s. As the mid-70s approached, he reunited with Maurice White, who at that time was with his own band, Earth, Wind & Fire

Sun Goddess" is a single by jazz musician Ramsey Lewis featuring the band Earth, Wind & Fire issued in 1975 on Columbia Records. The song rose to No. 20 on the Billboard Hot Soul Songs chart. Sun Goddess was produced by EWF leader Maurice White and composed by White together with Jon Lind. The song also came off Ramsey Lewis's 1974 album Sun Goddess. Sun Goddess has been covered by artists such as Tito Puente, Nicholas Payton, Henry Mancini and Doc Powell.

Sun Goddess (1974), Lewis’ biggest success of the decade, is miles away from the finger-snapping supper club sounds of The In Crowd. This album was released during one of the most productive periods of Ramsey’s career. The early to mid 1970’s were truly a time of exploration in music and Ramsey was no different. He was a major player in the Jazz-Funk period that saw albums released by Jazz artists like he and Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis amongst others that would take Jazz to a whole other place creatively and reject the idea of being forced into only a traditional point of view.
