Just a quick reminder that Ray recorded his 1959 masterpiece THE GENIUS OF RAY CHARLES with members of the Basie (Joe Newman, Al Grey, Frank Wess, Marshall Royal, Billy Mitchell, Charlie Fowlkes, Freddie Green, Eddie Jones), Ellington (Clark Terry, Quentin Jackson, Paul Gonsalves), and Ray Charles Orchestras, and featuring arrangements by Ernie Wilkins, Quincy Jones, Al Cohn, and Ralph Burns.  Not surprisingly, given the big band ideal of the day, it's got a Basie feel throughout.
