Without a doubt, working on this project showswhy Ray Charles is one of our world’s greatest superstars whose careerhas lasted several decades.”
Terry Howard, Ray Charles’ engineer and a Grammy-nominated engineerwho compiled the tracks for In Concert, immediately returned toMoonlight Mastering after Matter’s previous work on the RayCharles-produced Jimmy Scott CD. Howard said, “Over the years, I haveworked with the top-name mastering engineers such as Bernie Grundman,Doug Sax and so on. It’s one thing to have the right equipment, butreally knowing how to produce such a sonically great-sounding work isanother. In my opinion, I believe Nancy Matter is up there with theBernie Grundman’s and Doug Sax’s of the mastering world.”
