Alligator Bogaloo [lp] - Vinyl
NEW 1 available



Alto saxophonist Lou Donaldson scored a hit with YAlligator Bogaloo,Y the jaunty and memorable lead cut and title track of his 1967 soul jazz classic, but the album brims with funky grooves from start to finish with the breezy YAw Shucks,Y rollicking YRev. Moses,Y and the sinuous minimalism of YOne Cylinder.Y Alligator Bogaloo marked the beginning of a fruitful and long-running collaboration between Lou and organ master Dr. Lonnie Smith, with the stellar band also featuring the young guitar star George Benson, influential drummer Leo Morris (aka Idris Muhammad), and cornetist Melvin Lastie. This Blue Note 80 Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.
