You know what is nice about writing a review on Ray Charles? He was celebrated while he was here in the world of the living, not after his passing.

O-Genio-Ray Charles 1963 Live in Brazil is an early performance in black and white film of Ray and his incredible band performing live in Brazil in 1963. While the quality of the video is suspect at times, particularly on the second set, the performance by Charles and his orchestra is simple mesmersizing. To be honest I never delved into this man’s music as I did on this DVD. Much to my delight, I absolutely loved every minute of this.

Charles really was a musical genius. His ability to take ordinary standards like “You Are My Sunshine” and “My Bonnie” and turn them into soulful jazz workouts was a true wonder of musicianship and technical brilliance.

I can easily overlook the quality of the video for the historical importance and musical treasure that this performance captures. If you like the music of Ray Charles, or music in general for that matter, you will sincerely appreciate what this timeless DVD has to offer.

Rating-8/10
