Artist Song Album Label Comments
Hank Crawford Next Time You See Me Midnight Ramble Milestone Released in 1983. Hank passed away early this week at 74 years of age. Hank, like David "Fathead" Newman, who he played with regularly, were mainstays of Ray Charles' early bands. Now within weeks we have lost both of these sax players. Today's shoe will mainly concentrate on Hank's music with a bit of "Fathead" tossed in for good measure.
