It was good to see long time Ray Charles long time manager Joe Adams
hand in this recreation.  People who worked with Ray in his hey day like
Adams or the late great Sid Feller; the people who worked closest with
Ray needed to have their hands and minds in it to make sure it was
pulled off correctly.   I remember all of the hoopla a few weeks back
about this recording on JPL.  I myself had reservations about this
recording but not anymore.  I love Ray and Basie and I love the record.
It would be interesting to hear what people like Quincy Jones or Joel
Dorn think about it.
