A soul survivor in every sense of the term, this alto saxophonist is 1 of the few remaining jazz artists who made a major impact on the jazz community via an extensive run with producer Alfred Lion & the Blue Note label (Horace Silver being another Blue Note legend that comes to mind). From his 1st recordings for the label with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, it was clear that Lou Donaldson put melody & sound at a premium, coming up with an amalgam that combined the creamy smoothness of Johnny Hodges with the quicksilver bop inflections of Charlie Parker.
