For those of us in music retail, Ray Charles has always presented a problem as we love to place artists into handy categories in order to file their albums in the racks in our stores or on our websites! I have lost count of how many times I have been asked by young enthusiastic sales staff, “where does Ray Charles go??” Well, what’s the answer? It could be gospel, blues, boogie woogie, jazz, r”n”b, soul, country, pop or God forbid even easy listening! He’s covered them all at some time in his long and distinguished career. We usually ended up popping Brother Ray in the soul section, but unquestionably his influence across all musical genres was absolutely unsurpassed. We have covered a few of those genres in our first “Classic Albums” tribute to Ray Charles. From the blues of “The Genius Plays The Blues”, to the jazz of “Genius After Hours” and “Genius+Soul=Jazz” and on to the almost pop crossover album “The Genius Hits The Road” which produced one of his greatest moments and greatest hits in “Georgia On My Mind”.
