Ray Charles Live In Warsaw (2000)

On his 70th birthday, on 23 September 2000, Ray Charles appeared for the third time at the Warsaw Jazz Jamboree - this time a symphony concert at the Wielki Theatre. The show, directed by Dariusz Goczał, was broadcast by TVP 1.

From his band's Rolodex he picked Brad Rabuchin - g, Tom Fowler - b, Peter Turre - ds, and Larry Gillespie - tp; and he invited Victoria Bond to conduct the Łódź Philharmonic.

Someone uploaded his - incomplete - VHS-copy to YouTube (before #1 two to four more tunes must be missing from it):
  1. Georgia On My Mind (partial)
  2. Almost Like Being In Love
  3. The Good Life
  4. Say No More
  5. Blues For Big Scotia
  6. A Song For You
  7. All I Ever Need Is You
  8. Yesterday
