5.0 out of 5 starsThe Blessing5 Aug 2009
By William Easley - Published on Amazon.com
It was a Blessing that David (Fathead) Newman had an unmistakable Voice on the saxophone for 50 years. He maintained that voice against all odds and sounded great right up to the end. He had a wonderful warm spirit and it came right through his horn.

3.0 out of 5 stars'Fathead' Newman17 May 2010

'Fathead' as he was called during the years he appeared so well with Ray Charles' band from the 50's and on through, seemingly, the 70's or even the 80's. This album, 'The Blessing' is much later and is good - yet it doesn't have the 'soul' that his earlier and younger work with Ray had, in my humble opinion.
