Hot grooves for a hot summer

If the weather has to be HOT, the grooves might as well be, too.
That's my thinking today, as the temperatures once again rise and I play "THE NATURAL SOUL" album by one of my favorite jazzmen, LOU DONALDSON.
An album with tracks such as "Funky Mama" and "Nice 'n' Greasy" signals its intent before the first notes emerge from the speakers.
This 1962 album blazes out of the speakers.
Alto saxophonist Donaldson teams with trumpeter Tommy Turrentine and the absolutely dead-on funky trio of guitarist Grant Green (another of my absolute favorites), organist Big John Patton and drummer Ben Dixon and this group can really cook.
A perfect summer record, you might say!
