Wax Love present a reissue of Ray Charles And Betty Carter, originally released in 1961. Recorded in a couple of days in June 1961 in Hollywood, this fine album documents the historical meeting between genius Ray Charles and the wonderful Betty Carter, one of the greatest female jazz singers of all times. A powerful duet combination with Ray's deep-sweet tone in almost sensual relation with Carter's highly pitched and energetic vocals. The two literally fly on top of a series of sophisticated string arrangements and some highly swinging big band charts. Among the players are some of Ray's close collaborators such as reed men Hank Crawford and David "Fathead" Newman.
