Product Notes

Liner Notes Tucked away in a loft, in the small community of Sand City, California, lies Real to Reel Recording Studio. Here, owner/producer Gary Souza devoted a year of his time to the recording of this 20-song CD dedicated to the music of Ray Charles. Souza, a founding member and bass player for the legendary Broadway Blues Band for 16 years, has been recording local artists and writing songs for the past 7 years. A chance meeting at the Monterey Blues Festival in 2004 with vocalist Katie Birdsall gave Souza the inspiration that put this tribute album in motion. This gutsy venture brought together the talents of 48 musicians, the majority from the Monterey Pennsula area, including 9 lead vocalists, 8 horn players, 4 drummers, 5 keyboard players, and 10 background vocalists. Souza even composed an original gospel song especially for the project. The artists that appear on this album came together with one purpose in mind: to show their appreciation and respect for Ray, and to lay down a few soulful riffs in memory of this masterful artist. This is a labor of love with a whole lotta help from a whole lotta friends, all ... For the Love of Ray -Stephen L. Vagnini ____.
