Ray Charles, with David “Fathead” Newman and…Tina Brooks!
This is an amazing treat that no one could have hoped for: footage of tenor legend Tina Brooks. This is from a 1963 Brazilian television broadcast of Ray Charles and his orchestra. Tina (right) and David “Fathead” Newman lock horns on a swinging version of Quincy Jones’s “Birth Of A Band”.
