I read with disdain the current Jazz Week magazine's article that there will
be a new recording featuring the voice of Ray Charles accompanied by the
Count Basie (ghost) Orchestra due to the electronic coupling of both. I am
not a fan of these synthetic creations like Nat and Natalie and others. I
ask myself what's next, Shirley Horn and Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong and
Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra, Peggy Lee and Artie Shaw?????
