Ray Charles Genius+Soul=Jazz on Hybrid SACD
Originally released in 1961, Ray Charles' Genius+Soul=Jazz is a big band jazz album featuring arrangements by Quincy Jones and Ralph Burns and accompaniment from members of Count Basie's band including Thad Jones (cornet), Freddie Green (guitar), Billy Mitchell (sax) and Frank Wess (sax).
Genius+Soul=Jazz is primarily made-up of instrumental tracks such as the the Top Ten hit "One Mint Julep," but Brother Ray also graces the collection with the two signature vocal cuts "I'm Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town" and "I've Got New For You" for good measure.
