"What'd I say?" : the Atlantic story : 50 years of music by Ahmet M Ertegun( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Ertegun founded Atlantic Records in 1947 with $10,000 borrowed from his dentist, the 24-year-old native of Turkey was living in segregated America, which did not realize the beauty of its own cacophony. Spanning six decades, this coffee-table history goes a little deeper than most. Ertegun's anecdotes are intermingled with those of his business associates and recording artists. Atlantic's roster includes Ray Charles, Clyde McPhatter, the Drifters, Big Joe Turner, John Coltrane, Sarah Vaughan, Mabel Mercer, Bobby Darin, Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, Sam and Dave, Dusty Springfield, Led Zeppelin, Tori Amos and so on. There are nine essays by some of the most respected music journalists. Each nicely crystallizes the label's enormous contributions to R&B, jazz, rock 'n' roll, pop and soul."--BOOK JACKET

The great Ray Charles by Ray Charles( Recording )

1 edition published in 1987 and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These early Charles recordings come from his first L.A. sessions for the Swingtime label in 1949 and 1950, and they present a still-developing artist who was already full of both power and finesse. Presented here mostly in a small-group setting, backed by guitar and bass. Just a few years earlier, Charles had been concentrating on a more mannered, Nat "King" Cole style, but by this time, he was fully immersed in R&B. The slow, yearning "Baby Let Me Hold Your Hand" has what may be the only example of blues celeste. On "A Sentimental Blues," the vocal influence of Cole is still apparent, with Charles seeming to be in a transitional phase between pop and blues. However, blues definitely rules the day on these sessions, from "How Long Blues to "Sittin' On Top of the World." Brother Ray's soulful piano work and emotive vocals are showcased to fine effect throughout. THE GREAT Ray Charles ultimately paints a picture of an artist in transition, but still immediately captivating, whatever the style might be
