4.0 out of 5 stars I remember brother Ray - a review, 5 Feb. 2005
J. D. Naylor "jazzfan" (England) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Remember Brother Ray (Audio CD)
The evergreen David Newman has managed a warmhearted loving tribute to his soul brother and mentor Ray Charles with this 8 track selection of some of Charles's best known and loved songs.Unlike most of his recent albums he sticks purely to the tenor sax on this one displaying a tone full of warmth and feeling for this great tribute.
The c.d kicks off with an umptempo "Hit the road jack" and then moves into chillout mode with the beautiful "Georgia on my mind" and then possibly the pick of the album "When your lover has gone" played with the passion and warmth that makes Newman fairly unique amongst todays Jazzmen.He doesn't show the fire and brimstone and flashy teqhnique of many of todays jazz musicians he relies on a good old fashioned full toned warm sound and as much feeling as anyone puts into their music.
This album won't break any new ground but sit back and let one of the greats of the Tenor saxaphone take over.
Great relaxing listening to leave you feeling warm all over and i'm sure that's exactly what was intended by all.
Highly recommended.
