Description by OLDIES.com:

Bop alto sax player Lou Donaldson's big break came as a member of Art Blakey's Quintet, which appeared at Birdland in 1954. Largely influenced by the playing of Charlie Parker, Donaldson went on to develop his own sound by mixing elements of Blues and Funk into his playing. This two-for-one compact disc presents some of Donaldson's most memorable work recorded for Atlantic in the 1970s.

This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out of print Lou Donaldson LPs: Different Scene and Color as a Way of Life, originally issued on Cotillion Records in 1976 and 1977, respectively. These 16 tracks feature a combination of smooth jazz and soul-jazz on "Ebb Tide," "Night and Day," and Minnie Ripperton's "Loving You." This is mainly for fanatics; most casual listeners would be better served with one of Donaldson's classic Blue Note discs. ~ Al Campbell
