If you take talented musicians and listen to tracks sung by Ray and then
have the arrangements written for the Orchestra to match Ray's singing you
can come up with this product.  Remember this is the Basie Orchestra as we
hear it today, not the guys who did the Genius plus Soul = Jazz on Impulse
many years ago.
Without us getting into the use of technology our listeners will just give
their overwhelming support to this project.  ALOHA  Tom
