Ray Charles Live at the Antibes Jazz Festival INA Archives 1962


For Ray Charles, the 1950s were icon-making years. In a near decade-long partnership with Atlantic Records, he released such classics as "Mess Around," "What I'd Say," "It Should've Been Me" and "I've Got A Woman," before moving further into the jazz space towards the end of the decade, playing at Carnegie Hall, Newport Jazz and hiring a singing group called The Cookies to tour with him. For this concert he was joined by the same group, who had been renamed The Raelettes.
