Whoa! Now we're getting into the big leagues. Ray Charles,
cut from the original three-track tapes, pressed on 200-gram vinyl at Quality
Record Pressings. And not just any Ray Charles
title, mind you. Ray Charles and Betty Carter! Analogue Productions has reissued
a whole lot of classics - a whole lot - but there aren't many of 'em that are a
much bigger deal than this.
This is such a romantic album. Such a warm album. Such a rich album. And, ooh,
the sound! Turn the lights down and grab that special someone.
Originally released in 1961 on ABC-Paramount, Ray Charles and Betty Carter
features startling dynamics, with Marty Paich's arrangements showcasing both
punchy brass and lush strings. The showstopper, "Baby, It's Cold Outside,"
topped the R&B charts upon its release. And jazz singer Betty Carter's vocal
prowess shines on "Cocktails For Two" and "Alone Together." Ray Charles has
never sounded more romantic.
Betty Carter was known for her improvisational technique and unique vocal style.
At the young age of 16 she sang with Charlie Parker and later performed with the
likes of Dizzy Gillespi and Miles Davis.
