Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.81) - "[H]ere's Charles singing classics like 'Busted' and 'I Can't Stop Loving You,' even covering 'The Long and Winding Road,' at his expressive height."
Down Beat (p.88) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he result comes off as a well done big band set....It's wonderful to have these new versions with the Basie band added for solid support."
Artist Bio
Born in extreme poverty in Georgia, Ray Charles Robinson grew up in Greenville, Florida. He was slowly blinded by glaucoma until, by the age of seven, he had lost his sight completely. Earlier, he had been forced to cope with the tragic death of his brother, whom he had seen drown in a water tub. He learned to read and write music in Braille and was proficient on several instruments by the time he left school. His mother Aretha died when Ray was 15, and he continued to have a shared upbringing with Mary Jane (the first wife of his absent father). Dropping his surname in deference to the boxing champion Sugar Ray Robinson, Ray Charles drifted around the Florida circuit, picking up work where he could, before moving across the country to Seattle. Here he continued his itinerant career, playing piano at several nightclubs in a style reminiscent of Nat "King" Cole and a vocal similar to Charles Brown.
