Ray Charles - Live In Paris 20-21 Octobre 1961 / 17-18-20-21 Mai 1962

This 3CD set combines Ray Charles’ Paris concerts in autumn 1961 and spring 1962, and captures his audiences’ discovery of `The Genius’, a genuine phenomenon in Sixties’ French society. This is Ray Charles at the summit of his art, with music at the borders of blues, soul and rhythm & blues. These astounding versions of his greatest hits, including “What I’d Say”, “Georgia on my Mind”, “Hit the Road, Jack” and “Unchain my Heart”, and the exciting `live’ atmosphere, make this set indispensable as a fascinating illustration of an artist who, only ten years after his death, remains one of the most brilliant icons of 20th century music. Patrick FREMEAUXThe Live in Paris collection by Michel BrilliE allows listeners to hear previously-unreleased recordings (made at concerts and private- or radio-sessions) by the great 20th stars in jazz, rock & roll and song. These “live” takes, and the artists’ rapport with their audiences, gives these performances an additional soul and sensibility in counterpoint to the rigorous demands of studio recordings. Particular care was taken when restoring the sound of these tapes in order to meet CD standards while preserving the original colours of the period. Patrick FREMEAUX & Gilles PETARD
