WRITE A TRIBUTE TO LOU!
I bought a record (not cd) goodness gracious me... and after that, I just wanted to hear and learn about all you jazz people.
I can easily say you helped me to cope with life itself.
I am a guitar player myself, right now really into charlie christian.
And than I saw you on Tv, a documentary on blue note.
When all this covid-19 stuff is over, I'll be coming over to the states, especially for the jazz ;-).
You're such a great musician, thank you so much.
As a federal police agent counter terrorism, I get confronted by much evil of mankind, your music helps me staying humane and keep sane
Thank you dear Sir, so much.
All the best to you, and your dear ones.
Take care and be happy Mr. Donaldson !!!

On behalf of all of us at the Sunshine Jazz Org, we can never thank you enough for your friendship, talent and generousity over these many wonderful years. You have known us for many decades, celebrating our anniversaries with us, and last December you joined us with Ms. Alice Day for her final South Florida Jazz Hall of Fame celebration as you were Inducted. Very fond memories. Wishing you a fabulous, healthy year ahead. Much love, peace & Happy 94th Birthday!!
Thank you very much for the music you offer to us. I try to find your recordings through the years. Your playing is always suberb through all your periods, until today
Thank you for many hours of musical enjoyment. My husband & I shall
always treasure your thoughts of the 50's jazz scene's business side given on the Jazz cruise.
I hope you had a fantastic day!! I was just listening to one of your fine tunes and thought I'd look you up! I saw you a few years ago (not that many) at the Detroit Jazz festival and you were my favorite performer by far!
God bless you Lou. I look forward to wishing you another happy birthday next year. I will try to make it on time, next.time. - Ron
Happy Birthday! I am only playing my alto since March, but I have developed an ear and am so glad to have found you! Peace to you and your family.
