Don Wilkerson: The Complete Blue Note Sessions This CD is another entry in Blue Note’s critically acclaimed, limited edition Connoisseur Series. It features Texas tenor man Don Wilkerson working out with such noted Blue Note sidemen as pianist Sonny Clark, guitarist Grant Green (who appears on all tracks), bassist Butch Warren, organist John Patton and drummer Billy Higgins. As the title indicates, this 2-CD set contains the three albums Wilkerson recorded for the label in 1962 and 1963 — Elder Don, Preach Brother, and Shoutin'. Although Wilkerson achieved some fame for his work with Ray Charles, especially his solo on the classic I Got A Woman, these albums enjoyed limited success upon their initial release. Nevertheless, they are excellent examples of bluesy soul-jazz/R&B and indeed have become valued collectors items over the years. Groovy baby! ####
