Description by OLDIES.com:

During the '50s and '60s, David "Fathead" Newman worked with many of the greatest jazz artists and was best known for his long association with Ray Charles. He's paired with an outing from the one and only Dizzy Gillespie, the man many consider to be the best jazz trumpeter of all time.
