Originally released in 1973, Sassy Soul Strut is jazz saxophonist Lou Donaldson’s Blue Note record featuring numerous jazz specialists. The album features standards like “Sanford and Son Theme (The Streetbeater)”, “Good Morning Heartache” and “Pillow Talk”.Sassy Soul Strut pairs Lou Donaldson with arranger George Butler to create a smooth, unabashedly commercial session some distance removed from the saxophonist’s classic soul-jazz efforts. Emphasizing electric instruments and radio-friendly rhythms, the album nevertheless plays to Donaldson’s strengths, focusing more on mood and texture and less on funk. Opening with a gutbucket rendition of Quincy Jones immortal “The Streetbeater” (far better known as the theme to television’s Sanford and Son), Sassy Soul Strut quickly settles comfortably into a light, accessible mode too lively to dismiss as smooth jazz but too mellow to pass as anything else. Butler’s arrangements haven’t dated particularly well, but the record’s too innocuous and good-natured to qualify as an outright failure. It’s simply forgettable, nothing more and nothing less.
