Between May 17 and 25, 1962, Ray Charles, "The Genius", returned to Paris for a series of memorable concerts. And he was at his peak, fronting his big band and accompanied by his Raelets led by a dazzling Margie Hendrix. This 3-album set prepared by Joƫl Dufour with the help of Michel BrilliƩ and Gilles PƩtard contains previously unreleased material and bonus tracks that include recordings made in Ray's own studio, where he plays piano alongside his favorite artists, Percy Mayfield and Louis Jordan. And this set has a must: "Blue Stone" is a great instrumental with Ray playing alto, but he never recorded it in a studio. And you can listen to it here!
