The Way You Look Tonight

'99 LC MarciacAlbum 2000 OlympiaWith David Fathead Newman

Album (CD): Ray Charles à L’Olympia, XIII Bis Records 640543 2, 11 January 2005 (2000).

On August 10, 1999 the Jazz In Marciac festival announced a surprise package: the “Ray Charles Quartet – with special guest David ‘Fathead’ Newman”.

Having to record this song with Steve Turre just a few days later (be it in a different arrangement), gave Ray and Peter Turre a good reason for a live ‘rehearsal’.
Hopefully there’s still a good recording floating around somewhere (I have listened to a low quality audience-taped recording of the concert).

Ray Charles – p; David Fathead Newman – ts, fl; Brad Rabuchin – g; Tom Fowler – b; Peter Turre – d; Georges Arvanitas – p.

In 2000, at the Olympia concert in Paris, Ray played the tune again, now only with his rhythm trio (Rabuchin/Fowler/P. Turre).
