Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Making its belated first appearance on CD, this 1967 session finds trumpeter Donald Byrd picking up some of the pieces of his estimable hard-bop career before he veered off into fusion and atmospherics. His third effort in partnership with acrid-toned alto saxophonist Sonny Red (a.k.a. Sylvester Kyner) settles into a soulfully relaxed groove on the opening title cut (which drummer Billy Higgins, in a rare moment of verbosity, peppers with funky spoken declarations) and sustains an attractively even-tempered sound. The album includes graceful renditions of the standards "Secret Love" and "My Ideal" and two well-turned originals by pianist Cedar Walton, who is featured in the rhythm section with bassist Walter Booker. Nothing earthshaking here, but an enjoyable outing nonetheless. --Lloyd Sachs

Format: Audio CD
Yeah, the girl on the cover is adorable (you should see the gatefold on my vinyl) but it's what's inside that counts. When I first saw this album I assumed it was later period *blaxploitation* Byrd like that of "Street Lady" or "Stepping..." but this is straight-ahead jazz. This transitional album shows Byrd moving toward modal jazz and even hinting avant-garde while still firmly planted in the blues. Much more "serious" sounding than his later, funk-riddled Blue Note projects. Originally released in 1967, this is the first time this music has been issued on CD.

It is a must to have CD in your collection. When you touch on the mechanics being tight on playing each composition than you know jazz. E.Ruiz
