Satin Doll (Solo/By The Ray Charles Orchestra)

'68 LC Fresno'70 TV DukeUnreleasedWith Ray Charles Band


Ray played Satin Doll during Duke Ellington’s Sold On Soul Tribute, on 23 February 1970 at Madison Square Garden in New York. It’s highly uncertain if any recording of this performance has survived.
In these years Satin Doll was also on the repertoire of the band (i.e. as one of the show openers, without Ray). One low quality recording (“taped from the audience”) has survived from a 1968 concert in Fresno.
