Ray Charles
Genius Loves Company
(Concord)
Ray Charles was one of those rare artists who could transcend and leave his mark on any musical genre he touched. The posthumous release of his final (and aptly named) recording features Ray performing with such heavyweights as BB King, Van Morrison, Gladys Knight and Elton John. It’s on each of these duets that you can hear how effortlessly Mr. Charles moves from genre (folk) to genre (soul). Turn the lights down, sit back and listen to the fun Ray had while the tape rolled.
