Best and most ambitious of mid-60s Argo albums. Oliver Nelson supplied the arrangements for this nine-piece band. A true jazz legend, alto saxophonist Lou Donaldson was acclaimed from the mid-fifties onwards as taking forward the sound and concept of that other alto saxophone legend Charlie Parker. From the noteworthy live debut of Jazz Messengers ‘A Night at Birdland’ where he shared frontline duties with trumpeter Clifford Brown through the bluesy sixties Blue Note sessions in collaboration with organist Dr Lonnie Smith and arriving at the cohesive quartet he leads today, his jazz credentials to groove and swing are impeccable.
