In The Land Of Hi-Fi album by Sarah Vaughan was released Apr 06, 1987 on the Emarcy label. In the Land of Hi-Fi is one of Sarah Vaughan’s best jazz dates for EmArcy. In The Land Of Hi-Fi music CDs Accompanied by an all-star orchestra arranged by Ernie Wilkins and featuring altoist Cannonball Adderley (who was near the beginning of his career), the great singer is in superior form during these concise (around three minutes apiece) performances, particularly on “Soon,” “Cherokee,” “I’ll Never Smile Again,” and “An Occasional Man.” A strong session. ~ Scott Yanow.

The influence of Charlie Parker can be heard in virtually every modern jazz musician, particularly players of the alto saxophone. Although considered to be one of “Bird’s children,” Lou Donaldson absorbed and synthesized other pre-Parker influences, such as Johnny Hodges and Benny Carter. This recording marks a period in his development prior to a stylistic shift away from bop and toward a stronger rhythm and blues emphasis. Three up-tempo tunes are pure bebop; the remaining number is a medium blues in B flat, quite characteristic of the hard bop period. The front line on this set includes Donald Byrd and Curtis Fuller; the rhythm section is Sonny Clark, George Joyner, and Art Taylor. Overall, Lou Takes Off breaks no new musical ground, but it is a solid, swinging session of high-caliber playing.

Personnel: Lou Donaldson (alto saxophone); Donald Byrd (trumpet); George Joyner (bass); Sonny Clark (piano); Curtis Fuller (trombone); Art Taylor (drums).
