Say It Loud - Lou Donaldson

I was reading recently where a guy was asking for advice. Lou Donaldson was making an appearence and should he bother to go. I guess since he's in his 80's, Lou doesn't blow as forcefully as he once did, but what a gem. I wouldn't pass up the chance to see an icon like this for nothing.

I was really happy when I scored this record for just a couple of bucks out of a dusty box.

Taken from a Blue Note 84299 vinyl
1. Say it Loud I'm Black and I'm Proud
2. Summertime
3. Caravan
4. Snake Bone
5. Brother Soul

Lou Donaldson - alto
Blue Mitchell - trumpet
Jimmy Ponder - guitar
Charles Earland - organ
Leo Morris - drums
