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 ...

This album is classic Ray with lucsious strings and brass arrangements. Featuring that 'big band' sound that is synonymous with Basie and Ellington. In his very productive career Charles gradually progressed from playing in his own trio to adding brass and wind instruments and a backing vocal group dubbed 'the raelettes'. I would describe the love songs on this album as smooth and visceral (from the heart), the stand-out track for me being 'come rain or come shine'. A very special album from a very special artist.

If you are trying to work out what genius is, you should be listening to this record. Because this is indeed a great CD not only for Ray Charles fans but for all people who love beautiful, versatile and intelligent music. This 19-track CD includes one of the best songs by the late Ray Charles. "Blues Is My Middle Name" sings Ray Charles but so is R&B and Soul, Jazz and Rock'n'Roll because he literally influenced American music like no other artist did and all these genres wouldn't be the same if it wasn't for Ray Charles. If you haven't got anything by America's greatest singer, then this album is strongly recommended!!!

when people talk about ray charles i get a lovely feeling inside because the joy he give me when i was a kid lives forever he touched my soul but what ennoys me is the radio only ever plays 1or2 songs of his hit the road jack and goergia on my mind fab songs but theres so much more to ray charles!! and this album shows just what a talent he is he was a genius a way head of his time and very creatve just like jimi hendrix lennon/mccartney goffin/king joe meek phil spector etc i love dont let the sun catch you crying let the good times roll and loads more buy it classic!! i also reccommend modern sounds in country and western music and ingredients in a recipe for soul classics i must stress this album isant a best of its an actual album
