I thought that was a boot, but it's actually a legit release by the Something Else label out of Japan. They partnered a lot with Blue Note for a good while, wonder why thins on never came over...anyway, I found a nicely-priced copy on discogs and it's on the way.

I looked at that nicely priced copy and didn't jump. :excited:

About three years after the recording and Lee is still starting the solo on that same phrase ... 

On the other hand his trumpet blasts behind Wayne were nicely ... Frisky. :g

BTW, Amazon did not have CD release listed, though the BN site indicated there is one.

It's there today.

I hope Lou doesn't go off on his "Wayne Shorter can't play changes" trip in his interview....

Aww c, mon - that's part of the reason a Lou Donaldson interview will always make me smile - and learn a hell of a lot if you pay close attention to the deeper stuff he talks about. I recently re-read that epic interview with Ted Panken, what an amazing memory for detail and nuance of psycho-social context the great man has (Lou Donaldson).

I love Lou, but our loved ones can still say some stupid shit.
