Über das Album

Obwohl Ray Charles, einer der besten Sänger des 20. Jahrhunderts, niemals gesangliche Unterstützung benötigt hat, war er Duetten keinesfalls abgeneigt. Auf „Genius Loves Company”, seinem letzten Projekt vor seinem Tod im Jahr 2004, finden sich eine Reihe von Gästen. So gesellt sich für eine Performance des Elton John-Songs „Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word” eben genau dieser zu Charles, und für eine bezaubernde Version des Frank Sinatra-Hits „It Was a Very Good Year“ steht Charles Seite an Seite mit Willie Nelson. Natürlich geht es nicht nur um bittersüße Melancholie, und so tut sich Charles mit Van Morrison zusammen, um eine jubilierende Soul-/Gospel-Version von Vans „Crazy Love“ zum Besten zu geben. Das Album ist ein passender Schwanengesang – das titelgebende Genie, von Freunden umgeben, die er alle mit seinem seltenen Talent berühren konnte. ~ Jim Allen
