• Ray CHARLES - The Genius in Person - Journey Through the Early Albums 1957-1960

Jasmine returns with the follow up to JASCD 506 - 'The Singles Collection As & Bs 1952-1958' with more style, versatility and originality from the ever significant, Ray Charles.

This time around we have four complete classic albums presenting Ray as a jazz performer, R&B performer and as an exciting live performer with 'The Great Ray Charles', 'At Newport', 'The Genius of Ray Charles' and 'Ray Charles in Person'.

These is nothing new to be said about the inimitable Ray Charles that hasn't been said many times before, so simply sit back and listen to the genius in person.
