Ray Charles

Album Title: O-Genio Ray Charles 1963 Live in Brazil
Release Date: November 16, 2004
Genre: Blues
While a slew of Ray Charles' memorabilia has hit the shelves this past year with the announcement of the singer's death (and thus, a tribute is born), O-Genio Live in Brazil is very much alive with Charles' early years and recounts the life of an exceptional entertainer who started the best of soul music. "What'd I Say" opens the first CD with a foot-tapping bang and all of his classic hits are heard throughout both CDs, such as "Hit the Road Jack" and "Moanin'.

The surprising part of both CDs is of what good quality the studios have managed to keep them in to preserve such a performance. The second CD even features a Brazilian commercial and Ray's closing announcements makes you feel as though you were watching it on TV in 1963. This is a DVD not to be missed for avid Ray Charles fans and collectors.
