Now there's a man who knows his music.
But, does it make the subject matter in this instance

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.

Following up his Grammy award-winning album Overtime, DAVE HOLLAND returns with CRITICAL MASS, the first new studio album in five years from his highly acclaimed quintet featuring CHRIS POTTER (tenor and soprano), STEVE NELSON (vibes), ROBIN EUBANKS (trombone), and NATE SMITH (drums).  CRITICAL MASS features eight road-tested, original compositions on record for the first time and, of course, masterful performances by a jazz group that has become a trademark for excellence in music.
