Whoa! Now we're getting into the big leagues. Ray Charles, cut from the original three-track tapes, pressed on 200-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings. And not just any Ray Charles title, mind you. Ray Charles and Betty Carter! Analogue Productions has reissued a whole lot of classics - a whole lot - but there aren't many of 'em that are a much bigger deal than this. One track - "Baby, It's Cold Outside" - will make this one easily worth the price of admission!

 

This is such a romantic album. Such a warm album. Such a rich album. And, ooh, the sound! Turn the lights down and grab that special someone.

 

Originally released in 1961 on ABC-Paramount, Ray Charles and Betty Carter features startling dynamics, with Marty Paich's arrangements showcasing both punchy brass and lush strings. The showstopper, "Baby, It's Cold Outside," topped the R&B charts upon its release. And jazz singer Betty Carter's vocal prowess shines on "Cocktails For Two" and "Alone Together." Ray Charles has never sounded more romantic.

 

Betty Carter was known for her improvisational technique and unique vocal style. At the young age of 16 she sang with Charlie Parker and later performed with the likes of Dizzy Gillespi and Miles Davis.

 

Let the sparks fly. Order up the cocktails. And get ready to tango. Ray Charles teams up with jazz standout Betty Carter on this 1961 nightclub set, arranged and conducted by Marty Paich and produced by Sid Feller. Alternating between big band R&B and sweet balladic soul, the rapport between the two iconic vocalists remains seductive and unique in each artist's catalog.


Indeed, neither talent ever made another record that sounded like this, and do we need even boast about the R&B chart topper "Baby, It's Cold Outside," which became a standard the day it was released? Romantic, sexy, classy, hypnotic: This is a duets record for the ages.


Replete with lush strings and big brass, not to mention fireplace-warm coziness, the album has been enhanced to unimaginable degrees courtesy of Analogue Productions' 200g LP pressing, made at Quality Record Pressings and cut from the original 3-track master tapes. A no-brainer for vocal music fans and anyone who cares to snap their fingers, tap their toes, and get their groove on.
