Back to Basics

Back to Basics

by David "Fathead" Newman



A '91 CD reissue of a late '70s session by tenor saxophonist and flutist David Newman, which emphasized his patented soul jazz and blues while matching Newman with different players on various tracks, rather than having a fixed rhythm section. The top guest stars included keyboardists Hilton Ruiz and George Cables and guitarist Lee Ritenour.
