Ray Charles And Betty Carter Hybrid Multi-Channel & Stereo SACD
An Audiophile Classic! Cut From Original 3-Track Masters!
One track - "Baby, It's Cold Outside" - will make this one easily worth the
price of admission!
Whoa! Now we're getting into the big leagues. 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.
