Ray Charles — Genuis + Soul = Jazz

This mostly instrumental Ray Charles LP was the second release for the Impulse label.  It’s large group R&B with great playing throughout and arrangements by Quincy Jones and Ralph Burns.  Ray scored a hit off this record in 1961 with an organ-driven cover of the Clovers’ “One Mint Julep”.
