Since the other review is in French, I thought I'd offer my own:

This Collectables release consists of two albums, Eddie Harris's "I Need Some Money" and David 'Fathead' Newman's "Bigger & Better," both originally issued on Atlantic.

Neither qualifies as jazz. The Harris outing is bass driven funk, with vocals on Tracks 1, 2, and 5. Newman's album starts off with two Lennon/McCartney standards, and also features a couple of Sam Cooke tunes. Track 10 "The Thirteenth Floor" is the closest thing to jazz on either album, with Newman giving good account of himself on flute. At least on this album, Newman is playing R&B.

I'm a big Eddie Harris fan, but with so many better Harris albums out there, this release is completely disposable. If you're a collector, you'll want it as an oddity. But for something to actually listen to and derive some benefit from, forget it.

David "Fathead" Newman probaly is not the best saxophone player you will ever listen to. But he is a lyrical player and he has such a signature sound that you just got to love him. Like Hank Mobley, David "Fat Head" Newman kinda gets lost in the shuffle when you compare him to Sonny, Trane, Dexter, or even Stanley Turrentine !

Eddie harris livre avec cet album un bon groove bien chaloupé.I need some money est un classique du genre. Du bon jazz-funk 70's même si on peut(doit?) préférer un Grover Washington,Jr tel que le Live au Bijou.
