WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Alto saxophonist Lou Donaldson was known as a bebopper and disciple of Charlie Parker when he recorded with Thelonious Monk in 1952 before joining a distinctive version of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers along with trumpeter Clifford Brown. He began to forge a more personal path when he found commercial success and even a couple of jukebox hits with organ groups led by Big John Patton and others. Since the 1970's, Donaldson's signature has been that unique combination of bebop and funky soul that only his particular career path could have produced. "My first impulse is always to describe Lou Donaldson as the greatest alto saxophonist in the world," wrote Will Friedwald of the New York Sun in January, 2007.
