The great composer, orchestrator and saxophonist Craig Bailey, has been established both as a soloist and as a bandleader of the Brooklyn Big Band. He has spent a significant amount of his life as soloist and orchestrator of the legendary Ray Charles.
Collaborating with the Athens Big Band and Peter Salchev, he presents his own orchestrations performed by Ray Charles, as heard when he was a member of his orchestra. It is definitely an artistic event of great importance for our country’s musical life.
