Georgia On My Mind

Ad clipped from Billboard
29 August 1960.
Album: Album: Genius Hits the Road, ABC/Paramount 335, July 1960.
Single (A): ABC 10135, August 1960, b/w Carry Me Back To Old Virginny.

Recorded at the Capitol Studios in New York on March 25, 1960.

With Milt Turner on drums and Edgar Willis on bass, uncredited strings, and choir.
According to the original liner notes, the song was arranged by Ralph Burns. In reality, the tune was probably charted by Al Cohn.

Quincy Jones has also been credited for the live 'flute version' as played in the early '60s by the septet and the big band. The conversion of Georgia's original (string) arrangement for the live big band was probably done by René Hall.
For many years the Georgia theme (for that occasion called the Georgia Fanfare), together with a part of Roger Neumann's The Sandblaster, was played as Ray's walk-on tune. The Fanfare was arranged by René Hall.
