GENIUS LOVES COMPANY is a fine tribute to the late Ray Charles, for it reveals the genius of the man who helped form so many different styles. His voice is perfect, and those he sings duets with are a perfect fit.
This is sure to be a best-seller, because it is classic in jazz approach and offers some of the finest jazz duet performances ever recorded. Each singer is in top form.
There are twelve songs in the collection. Each one is a gem: "Here We Go Again" with Norah Jones, "Sweet Potato Pie" with James Taylor, "You Don't Know me" with Diana Krall, "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word" with Elton John, "Fever" with Natalie Cole, "Do I Ever Cross Your Mind?" with Bonnie Raitt, "It Was A Very Good Year" with Willie Nelson, "Hey Girl" with Michael McDonald, "Sinner's Prayer" with BB King, "Heaven Help Us All" with Gladys Knight, "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" with Johnny Mathis, and "Crazy Love" with Van Morrison.
This is a classic. Production values are excellent. Buy yourself a copy, get a few copies for friends, and ask your local Public Library to order a copy for its listening patrons. Highly recommended.
