Review

Review Text The packaging on this Rhino CD (which is a reissue of two complete Atlatnic LPs) is excellent but these sets are among tenor-saxophonist David "Fathead" Newman's more commercial efforts. The sessions that resulted in Bigger & Better feature Newman with a string section and studio musicians for forgettable versions of two Beatles songs, a pair of Sam Cooke R&B pieces and a couple of lesser items. The Many Facets of David Newman is less poppish and more blues-oriented with the lengthy "Children of Abraham" showing some passion, but overall the material is rather weak and has not aged very well. Skip this set in favor of Newman's more recent efforts. ~ Scott Yanow
