Incredible Jazz Records + the original analog master tapes + cut at 45 RPM + mastered by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman at AcousTech + pressed on two 180-gram virgin vinyl LPs by RTI = THE ULTIMATE LP REISSUE!
The same formula that made the Fantasy 45 Series perhaps the most successful
audiophile reissue collection ever is now being reapplied to Blue Note reissues!
Lou Donaldson is joined by Blue Mitchell, Horace Parlan, Laymon Jackson, Dave
Bailey and Ray Barretto for this 1959 session.
"A soul survivor in every sense of the term, this alto saxophonist is one of
the few remaining jazz artists who made a major impact on the jazz community via
an extensive run with producer Alfred Lion and the Blue Note label (Horace
Silver being another Blue Note legend that comes to mind). From his first
recordings for the label with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, it was clear that
Lou Donaldson put melody and 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." – All About Jazz
