Nancy Matter (pictured) of Moonlight Mastering has recently mastered Ray Charles: In Concert, a 29-song two-disc collection from five live albums: Ray Charles at Newport, Ray Charles in Person, Berlin, 1962, Ray Charles Live in Concert and Ray Charles Live in Japan. The collection also includes performances that were recorded between 1958 and 1975.

Matter, owner/engineer of Moonlight Mastering, said, "This two-disc set takes you through an era of a legend that shares his talent through his voice and his music. Without a doubt, working on this project shows why Ray Charles is one of our world's greatest superstars whose career has lasted several decades."

Terry Howard, Ray Charles' engineer and a Grammy-nominated engineer who compiled the tracks for In Concert, immediately returned to Moonlight Mastering after Matter's previous work on the Ray Charles-produced Jimmy Scott CD. Howard said, "Over the years, I have worked with the top-name mastering engineers such as Bernie Grundman, Doug Sax and so on. It's one thing to have the right equipment, but really knowing how to produce such a sonically great-sounding work is another. In my opinion, I believe Nancy Matter is up there with the Bernie Grundman's and Doug Sax's of the mastering world."
