Would anyone here consider him a blues and/or jazz artist? After I saw the Grand Ole Opry tribute to him, I've been turned on to his music, and I've found alot of blues and jazz sounds to him, especially on Stormy Monday. Any one else here even like him?

If this is on the worng forum, please let a mod know so they can move it or close it, or whatever they want to do to it.

i always thought of him as R&B, but he does have blues and jazz influences though

I agree with ledhead68, but im still a big fan. My favorite song is probably Mess Around.

Anyone see Ray the movie?

^yea, that was a really good movie, but first time i watched it i watched an extened version so it cut in and out randomly from the movie and extras, but jamie foxx did a really good job as Ray Charles

Did you watch the concert they did for him right before the debut of the movie?

I forget everyone that played but I remember B.B. King, Bruce Willis on Harmonica and somone else played together and it was really good.

Does this mean we can discuss Stevie Wonder too?

ooh... that's harsh. come on, georgia on my mind is pretty jazzy/bluesy. Still R&B I guess, but it's still a great song.

Ray Charles was admittably damned good, but I haven't liked much of what I've heard. I haven't heard much. I like the song "What'd I Say," what other songs are like that.

Those are some of his best IMO too. I like just about everything he played that I've got.
