    Caracas - Lou Donaldson

    7:21

    I don't have the words in my command to express how much I love the playing of Lou Donaldson. To me, he gets far too few mentions when the topic turns to jazz's all-time great altos. If it were left up to me that wouldn't be the case because I sing his praises whenever I get a chance! Here he treats us to one of his more Latin-tinged compositions. No matter what flavors Lou decides to use when he offers up his musical treats, you can best believe he's gonna be swingin'! From his 1963 album, Good Gracious, this is entitled Caracas.

    Lineup:

    Lou Donaldson - alto saxophone
    Grant Green - guitar
    John Patton - organ
    Ben Dixon - drums

    Lou Donaldson (Badin, Carolina del Norte, 1 de noviembre de 1926) es un saxofonista (alto) estadounidense de jazz. Conocido por su toque suave y blusístico, estuvo influenciado en sus orígenes por el sonido bebop de Charlie Parker y su sentido de la improvisación. Sus estilos han sido el bop, el hard bop y el soul jazz.Sus primeras grabaciones las realizó con algunos de los primeros representantes del bop, como Milt Jackson y Thelonious Monk en 1952, y lideró varios grupos pequeños con otras figuras del jazz como el trompetista Blue Mitchell, el pianista Horace Silver y el baterista Art Blakey.En 1953, grabó también con el trompetista Clifford Brown y con Philly Joe Jones. En 1954, Donaldson se unió durante un breve período al conjunto de hard bop the Jazz Messengers, y apareció en uno de sus discos más populares, A Night At Birdland.Aunque ha trabajado sobre todo como acompañante, nunca ha pertenecido a ningún grupo a no ser que fuese liderado por él, algo que ocurrió frecuentemente desde mediados de los años cincuenta.
