Ray Charles & Cleo Laine - Gershwin - Porgy & Bess


Ray Charles & Cleo Laine

Una extraordinaria versión de la ópera de George Gershwin, realizada con un concepto musical diferente, por dos grandes cantantes.

Esta dirigida y arreglada por Frank DeVol y la orquesta esta integrada por músicos de categoría:

Joe Sample, Joe Pass, Bud Shank, Lee Ritenour, J.J. Johnson, entre otros.

En mi opinión la obra me impresionó como insustituible para la colección.



This is a flat-out killer and a must-own.

Ray Charles is in top form on this famous version that was supposed to have Gladys Knight singing the part of Bess. Gladys, having just had the hit "Midnight Train To Georgia," was not available for the part after her management insisted to Ray that she own the master tapes.

If you know much about Ray Charles' story, you know that he always owned his own masters. So, Ray's next choice was Cleo Laine, who did a beautiful job of singing the part.

This two-LP set was mastered from the original analog tapes.
