Lou Donaldson
Alligator Bogaloo

Fusing hard bop and soul jazz and creating a seriously funky concoction, saxophonist Lou Donaldson scored a minor crossover success with the title track of his 1967 album Alligator Bogaloo, with the help of a young George Benson on guitar and a band that included Idris Muhammad on drums. This vinyl re-issue comes with new photos and liner notes.
