The Genius After Hours

The Genius After Hours by Ray Charles
Released: Jan 1961
Label: Rhino Atlantic
This 1961 LP showcases Ray Charles' skills as a jazz pianist in two settings: one with a trio and another with a septet led by Quincy Jones that features plenty of tenor sax solos from David "Fathead" Newman. Brother Ray was such a big star at this point that this soulful hard bop instrumental set did well on the pop charts.
