The ceremony took place at the Waldorf Ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. "Ray Charles [...] tore up the Waldorf when he admitted that he 'tried to steal Nat Cole's voice. I even tried to steal his piano - he wouldn't let me, but I tried.'"
At least a part of Ray's performance was filmed (archived by AP). The song was released on Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Volume 6: 2000 - 2001 (Time-Life, 2012l; available as download).
