Alongside the forward thinking post bop released on Blue Note in the early 1960s was a strain of funkier, simpler, and more blues-based jazz exemplified by the likes of organist Jimmy Smith and saxophonist Lou Donaldson. Donaldson's 1961 effort, GRAVY TRAIN, re-released in 2007 complete with Rudy Van Gelder remastering, is a strong example of the style. Donaldson takes on standards ("Polka Dots and Moonbeams") as well as originals, but infuses everything with a deep, bluesy flavor. The conga-driven groove of the title cut, and the Latin-tinged "South of the Border" are standouts.
