This concert was supposed to be a very emotional moment for Ray Charles. It was his 70th birthday, it was his first tour in this new millenium. This night, Ray Charles was supposed to play with his âbig bandâ? and his âraelettesâ? but due to an air traffic controllers lightning strike in Lisbon, his famous Big Band and The raelettes were stuck at the airport. So, the day of the concert, Ray arrived in Paris with a drummer, a guitar player and a bass player. They worked out a new show, set list and arrangements in the hotel room and came on stage late. It results a fantastic DVD of this unique âunpluggedâ? concert recorded in 5.1, with a rare emotion and sensibility.

If you like Ray Charles, this must be in your collection. I happen to love everything that the man produced musically. Watching him in performance, whether live or a recording, has always been a treat for me. If you're not a Ray Charles fan, this may not be "your cup of tea".
