ALTHOUGH CONSIDERED TO BE ONE OF “BIRD’S CHILDREN” LOU DONALDSON ABSORBED AND SYNTHESIZED OTHER PRE-PARKER INFLUENCES, SUCH AS JOHNNY HODGES AND BENNY CARTER. THIS RECORDING MARKS A PERIOD IN HIS DEVELOPMENT PRIOR TO A STYLISTIC SHIFT AWAY FROM BOP AND TOWARD A STRONGER RHYTHM AND BLUES EMPHASIS. THREE UP-TEMPO TUNES ARE PURE BEBOP ; THE REMAINING NUMBER IS A MEDIUM BLUES IN B FLAT, QUITE CHARACTERISTIC OF THE HARD BOP PERIOD.

THE LAMINATED COVER HAS SMALL WEAR TO CORNERS AND A BIT OF FLAKING AT TOP OF SPINE –– NO WRITING, NO STICKERS.
