    By Guest |

    Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of  popular artists and songwriters, releases the officially licensed commemorative  edition of The Ray Charles 80th Anniversary Sheet Music  Collection, arranged for piano, voice, and  guitar.


    The Ray Charles 80th Anniversary Sheet Music  Collection features 28 classic songs that Ray Charles recorded  over a 50-year span (1953 – 2003), highlighting the enduring legacy of the man  affectionately known as the “Genius.” Each sheet music transcription accurately  renders his signature piano riffs and solos, and provides lyrics, vocal  melodies, and chord changes. Pianists and fans of the Grammy®-winning  popular music pioneer will enjoy playing and singing to unforgettable songs as  “Hallelujah I Love Her So,” “Mess Around,” “What’d I Say,” “Georgia on My Mind,”  and many more. A sure collector’s item, the songbook presents a fun and  challenging assortment of some of popular music’s most enduring standards—and an  opportunity to practice the techniques of the “Genius” himself.


    The  songbook includes full color photos that capture candid Ray Charles performances  and recording sessions, along with a foreword by Victor Vanacore, who worked  with Ray Charles for more than a decade as a conductor, musical director, and  arranger. Bonus features include historical facts about the songs in the sheet  music collection amidst signature Ray Charles quotes.


    As part of Alfred’s  ongoing commitment to improving the environment, this songbook is printed on  recycled paper stock.
