Nine years ago this week, the great Ray Charles died. The performance in this video is of Ray with the Edmonton Symphony. Even today I can remember hearing his voice for the first time. There is no one that matches Ray Charles and perhaps that is why I fell in love with his music. I find nothing more soothing and grounding than listening to the best of Ray Charles, which for Ray is nearly everything he ever wrote or performed. Happy Friday!
