Beautiful, Swinging, Laid-Back Jazz Album On Vinyl LP!
Limited To 500 Copies!
Ray Charles's second long-player was released on the legendary Atlantic
Records in 1957. An instrumental jazz album, it was released two years before
Charles became an international superstar with the hit recording "What'd I Say".
Though Charles was already nearly a decade deep into his recording career he'd
yet to have a massive hit and was a difficult artist to pin down as his tastes
ranged from jazz to pop to R&B. Featuring longtime band member David "Fathead"
Newman and with help from the arranging and songwriting genius Quincy Jones,
this is a beautiful, swinging, and laid-back jazz album necessary for any fans
