LISTEN:  Lou Donaldson – Turtle Walk

From “Hot Dog”  :  1969  :  Blue Note Records (Out-of-Print)

As funky as Lou Donaldson’s albums were in the late 1960′s with Blue Note, he really turned up the heat on “Hot Dog”.  How could he not when the record features such future soul-jazz legends as Idris Muhammed (still billed as Leo Morris at this time) on drums, Melvin Sparks on guitar and Charles Earland on the organ.  Sweet Lou’s own Turtle Walk might just the best track on the album – it has everything that one could want in a soul-jazz burner and then some.
