Ray Charles On Country Music

Fresh Air

Last month, Ray Charles was voted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. That may sound odd to you since he's such a pivotal figure in soul music and rhythm & blues. But his 1962 album, 'Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music,' became one of his best known records, and included two of his biggest hits, "I Can't Stop Loving You" and "You Don't Know Me." Charles spoke with Terry Gross in 1998. Also, John Powers reviews two thriller films: 'Wife of a Spy' and 'Azor.'

Radio Richard | Richard Niles Podcast

ASMAC MASTERCLASS PART 2 JOHN ALTMAN & RICHARD NILES Different Approaches Explained Moderator: Sylvester Rivers Composer/Arrangers John Altman (James Bond, Rod Stewart, Monty Python) and Richard Niles (Paul McCartney, Ray Charles, Pat Metheny) demonstrate their different approaches and arranging techniques. For this special ASMAC event, they have both arranged short versions of a simple nursery rhyme, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. This is a unique opportunity to compare and contrast the working methods of two acclaimed artists with 100 years combined experience. Moderator and legendary arranger Sylvester Rivers asks all the right questions. How did they conceive, plan and execute the arrangement? How did they choose instrumentation, meter, groove, harmonic landscape? Why did they make those choices? Don’t miss this opportunity to share some musical knowledge, and some laughs, with three arrangers who have helped create the sounds of our time. BONUS: This PART 2 of this 2 hour presentation includes Altman’s CHASE SCENE from his score to the James Bond film, GOLDENEYE. PLUS, two live performances of Richard Niles’ BANDZILLA, at the 2002 Falkirk Festival, featuring singer PAT KANE and multi award winning jazz guitarist JIM MULLEN playing Niles’ arrangements of “Luck Be a Lady” (Guys & Dolls) and “Free Man In Paris” (Joni Mitchell).

The Genius of Ray Charles by Ray Charles

Post Amp

Ray Charles’s 1959 album showcases the famous singer and pianist giving his signature soul to sweeping big band arrangements and ballads with a string orchestra. It features Ray more in the setting of a typical pop singer of the time (see our episode on Frank Sinatra) than his typical rhythm and blues style.PRO TIP: We encourage you to listen to the album in full, either before or after its related episode.
