I bought this a while back in one of those excellent Tower records $7.99 sales, and still find it very enjoyable. The production is very straight-ahead - nothing too fancy, just beautifully recorded, bluesey, long pieces, in which each of the distinguished band take solos. The mood is quite laid back, and the drums have a gentle funkiness to them. Blue Mitchell (trumpet), George Benson (guitar), Lonnie Smith (organ) and Idris Muhammad (drums) make up the rest of the band. They are a cool bunch, and in particular, listening to this makes me feel like checking out some of Lonnie Smith's organ records. I've never heard a 60s record by Lou Donaldson on Blue Note which I didn't like, so I'll have to check out a few more of them as well.
