Ray Charles & Milt Jackson - Soul Brothers (180g Vinyl)

The rare opportunity to hear Milt Jackson step out from behind his familiar vibraphones to play piano, and partner Ray Charles, in addition to manning the 88s, blows on the alto saxophone for two numbers, shouldn't be missed. Particularly on this LP, which portrays the 1957 collaboration within a huge, naturally vibrant soundstage.

Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180 gram vinyl, this edition lays bare the relaxed, bluesy, often-boppish jazz on display from these two giants. With stellar support, the two headliners treat this affair as a backroom woodshedding session.
