Complete your Don Wilkerson collection.

Elder Don is an album by American saxophonist Don Wilkerson recorded in 1962 and released on the Blue Note label. It was recorded a month before Preach Brother!, but released later.

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  .

The archetypal big-toned Texas tenor of Don Wilkerson was unfortunately not documented on record as much as the quality of his music deserved; he was an excellent, earthy soul-jazz saxophonist capable of playing blues, ballads, bop, swing, and gospel-tinged R&B. Wilkerson was born in Moreauville, LA, in 1932, and first learned the alto sax; by his teens, he had. moved to Houston and was accomplished enough on tenor to play with R&B outfits headed by Amos Milburn and Charles Brown
