Wax Love present a reissue of The Great Ray Charles, originally released in 1957. Ray Charles's second long-player was released on the legendary Atlantic Records. An instrumental jazz album, it was released two years before Charles became an international superstar with the hit recording "What'd I Say". Though Charles was already nearly a decade deep into his recording career he'd yet to have a massive hit and was a difficult artist to pin down as his tastes ranged from jazz to pop to R&B. Featuring longtime band member David "Fathead" Newman and with help from the arranging and songwriting genius Quincy Jones, this is a beautiful, swinging, and laid-back jazz album necessary for any fans of Ray.
