The "big, handsome guy" on the cover of Jimmy Scott's album was tap dancer Foster Johnson. Though he was only about 5' 7', Foster was indeed suave. Future Star Trekker Nichelle Nichols was a part of his marital past and Jean King, of the vocal group the Blossoms, loomed in his marital future.

There's an excellent live recording of the Hawkins-Locke band on Verve called "Alive at the Village Vanguard." Eddie is featured on a 10 1/2 minute version of "Caravan." The recording is from two dates in 1962. Roy Eldridge and Johnny Hodges sit in on three numbers. Tommy Flanagan and Major Holley round out the rhythm section.
