One of the many alto players deemed a Charlie Parker descendant; Donaldson did indeed help carry the torch from the post-bop era but gradually infused more blues and eventually what was to become soul-jazz into his playing. This June 1957 session, cut in Hackensack, was a distinct departure from his previous dates for Blue Note. Pianist Herman Foster and conga player Ray Barretto, both of whom he would utilize on future recordings, are joined by the tasteful drummer Dave Bailey and bassist Peck Morrison to complete the quintet.This was one of Donaldson’s last sessions to incorporate piano, as he chose in the future to replace it with an organ, which fellow label-mate Jimmy Smith was making very popular. Not forsaking his bop roots altogether, Lou and crew mix it up on this set, with these originals, a mambo arrangement and a literally perfect rendition of ‘There Will Never Be Another You.’
