The late Ray Charles was called “The Genius” for his masterful synthesis of jazz, R&B, country, and gospel, showcased in this must-see concert by two similarly eclectic musicians: the versatile and renowned jazz guitarist John Scofield, one of the pioneers of jazz-rock fusion, and vocalist extraordinaire Mavis Staples, a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the voice on such timeless Staple Singers hits as “Respect Yourself” and “I’ll Take You There.”
