Biography

“I’ve recorded with so many amazing artists in my career but never on a duets album of my own. I thought it was timeto have some of the friends that I love and the artists that I admire come into my studio and sing with me live, the way we did it in the old days,” explains Ray Charles on the genesis of Genius Loves Company. “All the guests brought their own magic to ...

4.0 out of 5 stars True Genius 30 Aug 2007
By S J Buck TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
As the title indicates this is lovely set of recordings of Ray Charles playing Blues/Jazz Piano either with a Trio or with various horn and/or Trumpet players. The best known being Dave 'Fathead' Newman on Tenor Sax.
Another well known musician featured is Oscar Pettiford on bass.

This set shows that even if Ray Charles had never sung a note in his life his Blues and Jazz Piano playing would have been good enough to make a good career out of. My favourite track is 'Joy Ride' a bebop (Parker) inspired blues variation which I'm fond of playing to friends and saying "Who's the Piano player?". Nobody has answered the question correctly yet! It just isn't a style of Piano playing you associate with Ray Charles.

The recordings were made in 1961 and the running time is only 38 minutes. Listening to them again recently it only confirmed my view that Ray Charles was one of the most important figures in black American music full stop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instumental Ray 17 Dec 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A lot of folks forget that Ray Charles was a killer jazz-blues pianist. And this CD showcases that side of his talent. An all instrumental set that focuses on his jazz piano style with a heavy dose of the blues!

This is perfect late night listening. An especially nice are the trio cuts, which make up about half of the CD.

Late-night stripped down Ray with a serious case of the blues is what you get here!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ray plays straight ahead 31 Mar 2007
By Ben Bailey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a rare opportunity to hear Ray playing straight ahead jazz with legends Joe Harris on drums and Oscar Pettiford walking the bass. Listen to Ray bop along side Joe as he stirs the soup on the brushes during "Dawn Ray". Make no mistake this rhythm section swings hard; after all bop mastro Dizzy Gillespie hired Joe to play drums in his band during the mid 1940's. Enjoy all 38 minutes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Late night soporific (no ice) 8 Aug 2005
By Peter Bond - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If I was in a quiet bar, enjoying a quiet drink, late at night, feeling mellow and relaxed ... this is the music I'd be listening to. I know nothing about jazz (my wife told me) but even I know a stunning recording when I hear it. Released in 1961, therefore only 38 minutes of music on this album, but hey, it's 1961 right? If you want more, play it twice.

5.0 out of 5 stars DID YOU SLEEP ON THIS??? 14 Feb 2008
By Lester L. Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The genius could do it all. You want straight ahead jazz with a little something extra on the piano, ask Ray. This one will let you cozy up to that special someone on one of those quiet nights.
