Ray Charles and Count Basie never recorded together, but a new CD pairs the two music luminaries posthumously.

The finished product features Charles vocals on standards like "Let the Good Times Roll," "Georgia on My Mind" and "I Can't Stop Loving You." Many of the arrangements were written by guest instrumentalists including jazz veterans Shelly Berg, Quincy Jones and Tom Scott.

The CD also contains "Every Saturday Night" a long-time concert favourite never before released on a record.

The CD, "Ray Sings, Basie Swings " is due for release on the 3rd of october 2006 by Concord Records and Starbucks Corp's Hear Music
