The daughter of Lou Donaldson informed the Dutch jazz impressario couple Wim & Rita Wigt (also Timeless label owners), that her father Lou Donaldson will not perform in Europe this month because of lung problems (not lung cancer). Lou's doctor advised him not to travel by airplane. So Dutch concerts have been cancelled.
These lung problems exist already for a long time as Ria Wigt confirmed me by telephone today.
Lou is famous for playing concerts even when he is really sick. So Lou is not a softie!
As a big fan of Lou I hope he will recover.
