Gettin’ Jazzed: Lou Donaldson

Today’s Muxtape installment of “Gettin’ Jazzed” features the legendary alto-saxophone player Lou Donaldson and a cast of other notable musicians on “Footpattin’ Time.”

This song is taken from his 1970 release The Scorpion: Live at the Cadillac Club. The performance features the guitar work of Melvin Sparks whose 2004 performance at the Rochester International Jazz Festival was one of the best live performances I’ve ever seen.

The Lou Donaldson Quarter will be performing two sets at this year’s festival on Monday, June 16th.
