Lou Donaldson's 96th Birthday Celebration

Dizzy's , 10 Columbus Circle, New York, NY

One of the most respected names in jazz since the 1950s, NEA Jazz Master Lou Donaldson has worked with such innovators as Milt Jackson and Thelonious Monk. With a full, resonant sound and vocabulary that combines straight-ahead jazz, blues, bebop, and soul music, the alto saxophone master affectionately known as Sweet Poppa Lou coined his style “soul sax.”

From his front-row seat, Donaldson will share his high vibration with club goers as well as performers Akiko Tsuruga, Fukushi Tainaka, Champian Fulton, Charlie Sigler, Zaid Nasser, and surprise special guests. Join us in saluting a legend on his 96th birthday!
