Ray Charles Live In Atlantic City (1996)

'96 LC AtlanticCityConcert 1996 AtlanticCity

From 19 to 21 January 1996 Ray Charles played a series of symphony concerts at the Mark G. Etess Arena (in the Trump Taj Mahal), in Atlantic City. Ray flew in his orchestra’s rhythm section – with Peter Turre on drums, Kenny Carr on guitar, and Curtis Ohlson on bass – and Victor Vanacore as a conductor. The show on the 19th was taped from the audience; the audio quality is reasonably good.
