CD

(€8.84 || £7.63 || ¥1104) (approx.)

2 mid 70s albums by Lou – recorded for the Cotillion label – and in a sweet mellow style that's a whole different sound than his Blue Note work! Lou's playing over some larger electric backings, mostly arranged by Mike Goldberg, with some nice electric piano touches that float underneath Lou's soulful alto solos on the tracks. The overall groove is more in an instrumental soul mode – and the CD includes a nice cover of Minnie Riperton's "Lovin' You", and the Isley's "For The Love Of You" – plus the cuts "Keep Your Woman", "Walkin Sally", "Maker's Dream", "Too Much To Explain", "Passion Fruit", "Comin Thru The Backdoor", and "Here's Lovin At You".  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Blue Note (Japan), 1961. Used
An early 60s killer from Lou Donaldson – one that's more than lives up to the promise of its great cover and compelling title! The lineup has Lou blowing in an easy, soulful style – working with a combo that includes Herman Foster on piano, Ben Tucker on bass, and Dave Bailey on drums ... CD
Sassy Soul Strut
Blue Note (Japan), 1973. Used
Plenty of sass, and plenty of soul – a great mix of modes from the mighty Lou Donaldson! The set has Lou expanding his sound a bit from the harder funk of Blue Note dates from a few years before – working with arranger George Butler, who gives the record a cool electric vibe – ... CD
Fried Buzzard
Cadet/Universal, 1965. Used
A live set recorded in 1965 – and more straight ahead soul jazz than Lou's later funk work on Blue Note, even though Leo Morris/Idris Muhammad is on drums. The album is a nice transitional session, though, with a good lounge jazz feel, and some nice long cuts like "Fried Buzzard", ... CD
Alligator Bogaloo
Blue Note, 1967. Used
Excellent funky work from Lou Donaldson – and a groundbreaking record that was the first to feature him playing on Blue Note with drummer Idris Muhammad – who is listed on the session under his birth name, Leo Morris! Muhammad gives the album that crackling funky bottom sound that ... CD
Blues Walk
Blue Note, 1958. Used
One of the best of Lou's earlier Blue Note albums – a hard-wailing soul jazz set with some very hip conga in the mix! The group's a really solid one – Lou's famous early quartet – and Herman Foster plays piano, Peck Morrison's on bass, and Dave Bailey's on drums. A young Ray ... CD
Blue Note, 1960. Used
One of the most perfectly crafted moments of Lou Donaldson's hardbop genius at Blue Note – and a beautiful example of the way that Lou could handle the alto sax with a sharpness that earned him a place in the post-Parker lineage – but also a sense of soul that was miles away from Bird! ... CD
Good Gracious!
Blue Note (UK), 1963. Used
A cool cooker from the great Lou Donaldson – and a record that's ever bit as tasty as its cover! Lou's really hitting his soul jazz stride here – stepping off his 50s bop years, and moving into a more gutbuckety groove that's delivered with wonderful accompaniment from a quartet that ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, Early 60s. Used
Stunning! 2 of Philly Joe's best albums on one CD – and both of them are hard as heck to find in any other format! Philly Joe's beat is a beautiful bit of modernist hardbop. Philly Joe pounds away with his usual clarity and groove, but the real treat is an unexpected appearance by the ... CD
Bobby Brookmeyer
Collectables, Late 50s. Used
Reissue of the rare Vik album by trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, originally recorded in 1956, with a number of different groups that include players like Al Cohn, Milt Hinton, Nick Travis, Hank Jones, and Gene Quill. The approach is typical to the RCA jazz releases of the 50s – lots of tight ... CD
Soul Clinic/Blues Shout
Atlantic/Collectables, 1960/1961. Used
2 lost soul jazz classic from the Atlantic catalog! Hank Crawford's Soul Clinic is one of the few albums we really like by him, and it features the soulful altoist playing in a group with David Fathead Newman and some other lesser-known players who are nice and soulful. The set's got some warm ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1964. Used
2 of Art Farmer's best 60s albums – back to back on one CD! Both albums feature the flugelhorn work of Farmer alongside mellow guitar work from Jim Hall, bass by Steve Swallow, and drums by either Walter Perkins or Pete La Roca. There's a spare brilliance to both albums – a sense of ... CD
