A soul music icon, Ray Charles was equally conversant in jazz, as showcased at George Wein's annual clambake. Accompanied by outstanding musicians like tenor saxophonist David "Fathead" Newman and drummer Teagle Fleming, Ray delivered a rousing set of jump blues, gospel and R&B that kept the Newport crowd on its feet well into the night.
This stirring performance is an important document of a truly great American performer near the start of a long and illustrious career; an excellent addition for those just starting their vinyl library and seasoned collectors alike.
