Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra is joined by special guests Joe Doria (Hammond B-3 organ) and Reggie Goings (voice) to celebrate the music and legacy of the great Ray Charles. Affectionately called “The Genius” and “Brother Ray,” he launched his national career with his own big band, the Ray Charles Orchestra, and toured with the group around the globe. This concert will feature “Them That Got”, “One Mint Julep”, “I Got News For You”, and of course, “I Can’t Stop Lovin’ You” plus rare, unpublished big band scores played on the road by the RC band, and newly added to the SRJO library. SRJO will also be joined by student soloists (all graduating seniors) from award-winning high school jazz programs in our region!
