The great Ray Charles by Ray Charles( Recording )

6 editions published between 1987 and 2004 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 113 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
