Georgia On My Mind – Ray Charles, arr. Peter Kleine Schaars
Peter’s Popular Collection Grade 3 – Duration: 04:35
This jazz ballad from 1930 is probably one of the most covered standards of all times. The most famous interpretation dates back from 1960, covered by the one and only Ray Charles. Since then, in 1979 the song was declared the official state anthem for Georgia in the United States. Top arranger Peter Kleine Schaars has now made an amazing arrangement for band using the Ray Charles version – it’s so close to the original that you can still feel the vibe of the 60s.
