David "Fathead" NEWMAN - Keep The Dream Alive 1977
PR 10106
Recorded May and July, 1977


Born 24 February 1933, Dallas, Texas, USA. Newman is a tenor/baritone/soprano saxophone player and flautist, whose work contains elements of both jazz and R&Born In the early 50s he toured with Texan blues guitarist T-Bone Walker and recorded the classic "Reconsider Baby" with Lowell Fulson in 1954. For the next 10 years Newman was part of Ray Charles' orchestra, appearing on landmark recordings such as "I Got A Woman", "What'd I Say", "Lonely Avenue" and "Keep The Dream Alive". Other tenures have included the saxophone position in Herbie Mann's Family Of Mann (1972-74). He has recorded some two dozen albums as a leader since 1958, most tending towards mainstream and post-bop jazz with a funk edge, and has worked extensively as an accompanist in the blues, rock and jazz fields. He worked on Natalie Cole's bestselling Unforgettable (1990), and enjoyed much acclaim for his involvement in the Bluesiana Triangle benefit projects in aid of the homeless.
