I realized that I wrote way too much about technical stuff so far and not enough about music, so here is another one of my favorites: Lou Donaldson's Alligator Bogaloo:
This album was recorded 1967 under the Blue Note label. This record is full of groove, soul, drive and a bit of bluesiness. My favorite track is 'One cylinder'. This track stands out in the unique way it lays down the rythm. I mentioned in my last article about music, that I'm going to write about more pieces which experiment with the beat. Lonnie Smith who plays the organ provides the beat by playing just a single key throughout the entire piece. With just a little support from the drums. The beat he lays down is so throbbing and full of drive, it is hard to keep the feet still while listening to this. He puts so much passion and variety in it and still plays just one note. Hence the name One Cylinder.
