O’s Notes: We all miss the legendary rhythm & blues, soul and jazz musician Ray Charles. While many accolades have been thrown upon him, his last recording captures the respect and collaboration from his peers. It was recorded live in Ray’s studio during the 12 months proceeding March 2004,. There are a dozen classic songs pairing Charles with Norah Jones, James Taylor, Diana Krall, Elton John, Natalie Cole, Bonnie Raitt, BB King, Johnny Mathis, Gladys Knight and more! The talent is not wasted on Genius Loves Company and we’re happy to report that Ray’s gutsy baritone remains in tact. It is more than a reminder; it is a celebration laced with some of the best in the business. It’s a living tribute to and including the wonderful Ray Charles.
