About

Following his standing-ovation performance in last season's Blue Note at 75 Celebration, experience the soulful groove of 88-year-old NEA Jazz Master saxophonist "Sweet Poppa Lou" Donaldson and his quartet in a single Terrace Theater performance highlighting his distinctive blues-drenched sound, which has been a bopping force in jazz for more than six decades. Considered one of the greatest alto saxophonists of all time, Donaldson "remains the leading exponent of this soul-jazz approach. Yet even at its bluesiest, his playing remains informed by bebop" (The New York Times).

Performance Timing: 75 minutes, with no intermission.
