Lightly Latin - 1966

Perry returned to New York in the fall of 1965 where he made his first recordings with Nick Perito as conductor and arranger and, of course, The Ray Charles Singers. This is the first of a dozen albums which Perry would record with Perito at the helm over the next thirty years.
