The talented David Newman, who alternates on this album between tenor and alto, made his debut as a leader at this session. Since he was in Ray Charles' band at the time, Newman was able to use Charles on piano along with Hank Crawford (here called "Bennie Crawford") on baritone, trumpeter Marcus Belgrave, bassist Edgar Willis, and drummer Milt Turner. The music is essentially soulful bebop, with the highlights including "Hard Times," "Fathead," "Mean to Me," and "Tin Tin Deo." Everyone plays well and this was a fine start to David "Fathead" Newman's career. This historic set was issued on CD by Collectables in 2005.


David "Fathead" Newman first made his mark as a member of the Ray Charles band. But a talent this large was not destined to remain a sideman. Yet what a coup for Newman to have his debut as leader take place under the auspices of Mr. Charles himself-on Fathead: Ray Charles Presents David 'Fathead' Newman. Here the saxophonist picks up the alto to deliver an impassioned rendition of Ann Ronell's 1932 standard "Willow Weep for Me." Even before you get to the solos, Newman puts so much oomph into the melody statement that you already know that you are in the presence of a world-class artist. Not to be outdone, Ray Charles (in a rare sideman role) shows off his jazz chops. Charles gives a passing nod at Art Tatum's famous arrangement of this song in his intro, but then gets into his own distinctive bag of funky tricks. Newman would continue to delight jazz fans for another half-century, but even at this young age was a confident stylist with a sound all his own.
