Charles, Ray - Genius Loves Company

Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 - June 10, 2004) also known as Ray Charles was the musician most responsible for developing soul music. Singers like Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson also did a great deal to pioneer the form, but Charles did even more to devise a new form of black pop by merging '50s R&B with gospel-powered vocals, adding plenty of flavor from contemporary jazz, blues, and (in the '60s) country. Then there was his singing; his style was among the most emotional and easily identifiable of any 20th century performer, up there with the likes of Elvis and Billie Holiday. He was also a superb keyboard player, arranger, and bandleader. The brilliance of his 1950s and '60s work, however, can't obscure the fact that he made few classic tracks after the mid-'60s, though he recorded often and performed until the year before his death.
Rolling Stone ranked Charles number ten on their list of '100 Greatest Artists of All Time' in 2004, and number two on their November 2008 list of '100 Greatest Singers of All Time'. In honoring Charles, Billy Joel noted: 'This may sound like sacrilege, but I think Ray Charles was more important than Elvis Presley.'
