JIMMY KATZ: Ray Charles (fine art print)


Jimmy Katz has been photographing the who’s who of jazz and music for the last 30 years. Here, Ray Charles is caught laughing – when your nickname is The Genius, as his was, you’d better keep a good sense of humor! Ray Charles is regarded as one of the most iconic and influential singers of all time. Who can ever forget his rendition of “Georgia on my mind”? (Full disclosure: I’m a fan and I particularly love this portrait)
