Here’s a groovy 1970 Blue Note 45, Lou Donaldson playing the Allen Toussaint-penned “Everything Thing I Do Gon’ Be Funky”. I love the Lee Dorsey version of this tune, but don’t have that on vinyl just yet. The title itself sums up the soul jazz direction Donaldson took through this era, much to the disdain of fans of his straight ahead playing. I happen to enjoy both styles, and fortunately he released many excellent albums to choose from depending on your taste.
