Jazz for Curious Listeners
Ray Charles: Genius & Soul -- Big Band Classics with Quincy Jones and Basie
September 25, 2012

Presented with Berklee College of Music

Quincy Jones and Ray Charles met as unknown young men in Seattle in the late 1940ís, and within ten years both were well on their way to becoming international stars. Their 1961 collaboration, Genius and Soul, has long been recognized as one of the best jazz albums ever recorded. Backed by an all-star band comprised of Ellington and Basie veterans, the music exploded. Join us for a wonderful evening as we find out how and why it happened.
