Ray Charles - the 1950's

from Brother Ray: Ray Charles' Own Story, pages 181-182:

My band was really shaping up [in the mid-1950’s]. I found me three or four real motherfuckers, guys who could hold their own with anyone, anywhere… Donald Wilkerson, another tenor player, joined us, and, like Fathead, he was one of the best musicians I'd ever heard.
