5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz-pop fusion from the 1970s July 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Donald Byrd's funky jazz arrangements comprise most of the tracks on this fine collection of music from the former Howard University professor. Two selections from Byrd's hugely popular 1974 "Street Lady" album are here, including that title tune and "Lansana's Priestess". A couple of Byrd's hits with the Blackbyrds would have made a nice addition to this CD but the music here is great from the first track to the last. Byrd's admirers would be hard-pressed to find an album that can top this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sky High with Byrd August 27, 2002
Format:Audio CD
DONALD BYRD is truly a music-master. He has done numerous great albums over the years. This CD is undoubtedly one of the best ways to appreciate the 'Godfather of JazzFunk'. Not only is this disc packed with cool, funky and deep timeless trax (buy this disc and it will never go out of date), it also provides the blue-print for future jazz and dance-orientated music. In other words, THE BOMB! The majority of the tracks are produced by the wizard-like production duo the MIZELL BROTHERS, who are responsible for JOHNNY HAMMOND's and BOBBI HUMPHREY's best material. The collection of tracks will move your body (eg. CHANGE, DOMINOES) as well as your soul (WIND PARADE, YOU AND THE MUSIC, LANASANA'S PRIESTESS). Which is why you can't fail. I'd put this disc up there will the best of my Soul/Jazz/Funk collection, and believe me my collection is big.

This great music is timeless and will always be amazing. Every track is a jazz hit and flows effortlessly. I have enjoyed listening to these classic tunes at home, at work and while driving. Kudos to the late Dr. Donald Byrd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gone too soon February 24, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'd purchased this CD just 2.5 months before Donald's passing. I was recuperating many of my CD collections which were stolen and this was one of the many. I'm happy I was able to purchase it through a used collection at Amazon and the CD was in 'GREAT CONDITION'!

So many are gone too soon and Donald Byrd is one of them! RIP Donald!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Selections, Horrible Sound January 12, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These are some great Donald Byrd picks! However I could not go past two songs due to its terrible stereo quality. It is pretty bad when your head starts hurting after about a minute. I would love to go through the whole CD, but I think I will need a better EQ.
