  1. Donald Byrd was considered one of the finest hard bop trumpeters of the post-Clifford Brown era. He recorded prolifically as both a leader and sideman from the mid-’50s into the mid-’60s, most often for Blue Note, where he established a reputation as a solid stylist .
  2. Donaldson Toussaint L'Ouverture Byrd II (December 9, – February 4, ) was an American jazz and rhythm & blues trumpeter and vocalist. A sideman for many other jazz musicians of his generation, Byrd was known as one of the rare bebop jazz musicians who successfully explored funk and soul while remaining a jazz artist. As a bandleader, Byrd was an influence on the early career of.
  3. Donald Byrd's last Blue Note album with fusion genius Larry Mizell – and a doozy! The record builds off the style of previous Byrd/Mizell outings – like Places & Spaces, Street Lady, and Black Byrd – mixing together a similar blend of heavy rhythms, keyboards, and sweet funky trumpet licks from Donald. The sound here's a bit tighter than on some of the previous records.
  4. A Donald Byrd treasure – and an album that was almost left in the vaults by Blue Note, until they briefly released it at the end of the 70s! The cover and title are a bit unfamiliar, but the music is right up there with Byrd 's classic sessions with baritonist Pepper Adams – a great player here, with a deftness on his horn that's incredible – matching all the sharp changes and soulful.

  6. Mar 04,  · I absolutely love these records and have Black Byrd on the above SACD, along with the VMP LP of Fancy Free & the BN CD of Ethiopian Knights. But yes, Black Byrd is the first in association with Mizzell, followed by Street Lady, Stepping Into Tomorrow, Places and Spaces & Caricatures. I love 'em all, and I typically enjoy Mizzell projects.
