Donald Byrd
Kofi

BLUE NOTE

Ace, key DB. 'The perfect bridge between his spacey late-60s attempts to mimic Miles, and his tighter early-70s jazz-funk with the Mizells.' Trumpet-tenor-flute; Duke Pearson on electric piano.



Solomon Ilori And His Afro-Drum Ensemble Igbesi Aiye / Gbogbo Omo Ibile
Vinyl debut of 1964 Blue Note recordings Donald Byrd, Elvin Jones and co in amongst resplendent Nigerian drumming. Around thirteen minutes of classic Pharoah and Alice Coltrane vibes, each side.





Donald Byrd Slow Drag
Great hard bop, passing in 1967 from bluesy to modal, with Cedar Walton, Billy Higgins and the terrific Sonny Red. The long title track is sultry and grooving; and there's a version of the dancer Book's Bossa.
