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.
