Ray Charles and Milt Jackson — Soul Meeting

Here’s a promo copy of a great Ray Charles and Milt Jackson record.  This and the Soul Brothers LP that preceded it are high points of where blues and jazz meet, and I can listen to it over and over.  Ray Charles’ Atlantic sessions have been on a pretty constant rotation for me since I was a teenager, so it’s cool to hear a twist on that–a bit more jazz than r&b/soul, and lots of room to stretch out.

Ray switches between piano, wurlitzer, and alto sax; Milt Jackson is, of course, on vibes, and Kenny Burrell, Percy Heath, and Art Taylor make up the rhythm section.
