About Lou Donaldson:
Jazz critics agree that “Sweet Poppa Lou” Donaldson is one of the greatest alto saxophonists of all time. He began his career as a bandleader with Blue Note Records in 1952 and, already at age 25, had found his sound, though it would continue to sweeten over the years — earning him his famed nickname –“Sweet Poppa Lou.”
Donaldson, also known as “Sweet Poppa Lou,” has received many awards throughout his career, including admission to the International Jazz Hall of Fame.
Recently, Lou’s hometown Badin, North Carolina passed a resolution honoring its native son and publicly declaring its intention to re-name a portion of its NC Highway 740 “Lou Donaldson Boulevard.”
