Charlie ByrdJazz At The Showboat ... LP
Offbeat, Early 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
Very early work from Charlie Byrd – a cool little record that has him playing at his home turf of the Showboat club in DC, and working with a group that includes a fair bit of horn players! The style's quite different than Byrd's better-known Brazilian work of the 60s, or his lusher large ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie ByrdLatin Impressions ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
The Latin Impressions here are more Brazilian than Cuban – and maybe a bit Spanish, too – given the strong use of acoustic guitar from Charlie Byrd! The set's got a laidback, open feel – and Byrd's guitar work is mighty deft, yet without all the frills and flowers of some of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie ByrdOnce More – Charlie Byrd's Bossa Nova ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A lovely little record from the man who helped Stan Getz find his bossa – and a set that's done with just a bit more backing than usual from Byrd for the time! The album makes nice use of additional percussion, vibes, cello, and a bit of flugelhorn to back up Byrd's work on acoustic guitar ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Donald ByrdBlackjack ... LP
Blue Note, 1967. Very Good+ ... $14.99
An incredible album from Donald Byrd – hard, funky, and with more of an edge than most of his other Blue Note work! The sound on the album's incredibly sinister – really concerned with downward chord turns in moody rhythms – played with a real sense of soul by a frontline that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Donald ByrdByrd In Flight ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. Near Mint- ... $28.99
A wonderfully lyrical session from trumpeter Donald Byrd – yet for some reason, the album's one of his most overlooked from the 60s! The session features material by 2 different groups – one that includes Byrd, Hank Mobley, and Duke Pearson; and another which features Byrd, alongside ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Donald ByrdByrd's Eye View (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Transition (Japan), 1955. Used ... $12.99
A wailer! This rare 1955 album is one of Donald Byrd's first records as a leader – recorded for the tiny Transition label in Boston, but with a hardbop groove that's right up there with his early work for Savoy and Blue Note. The record is practically a Jazz Messengers session – as it ... read more CD

✨✧ Donald ByrdByrd's Word ... CD

One of Donald Byrd's earliest sessions as a leader – a hard and heavy all-star set that features a quintet with Frank Foster on tenor, Hank Jones on piano, Kenny Clarke on drums, and Dave Chambers on bass.

Landmark, 1991. Used ... $9.99
Sure it's not the Blue Note years, but this is an excellent late set by Byrd that shows he was still one hell of a leader!

Donald ByrdGetting Down To Business ... LP
Landmark, 1990. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Nothing fancy, but a great back to basics session from Byrd – very solidly played, with a tight group, in a style that recalls his best mid 60s work for Blue Note! Players include Kenny Garrett, Joe Henderson, Donald Brown, Peter Washington, and the great Al Foster on drums – and the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Donald ByrdI'm Tryin' To Get Home ... LP
Blue Note, 1965. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Donald Byrd's second foray into the "with voices" genre – done with the same arranging talents of Coleridge Perkinson, the lyrical modernist who made Donald's A New Perspective such a success! The group that plays with Byrd is excellent, and includes Freddie Roach, Herbie Hancock, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Donald ByrdJazz In Paris – Byrd In Paris ... CD
Universal (France), 1958. Used ... $4.99
Early in his career, Donald Byrd spent some time in Paris – where he not only got a chance to work in a whole new setting with some really great players, but he also got to record some fantastic sides that still stand as some of his best hardbop work! This rare album was originally issued on ... read more CD

Donald ByrdJazz In Paris – Parisian Thoroughfare ... CD
Universal (France), 1958. Used ... $4.99
The second volume of work that Donald Byrd recorded live at the Olympia in Paris in 1958 – even harder-hitting in tone than the first!

Donald ByrdMustang! ... LP
Blue Note, 1966. Good+ ... $29.99
One of Donald Byrd's most fantastic records for Blue Note – and one of three gems that he recorded with the great Sonny Red on alto sax! Byrd and Red work magnificently together – and the two of them play with a tightness and funkiness that's missing from a lot of their other records ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Donald ByrdNew Perspective ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
A classic album that mixes trumpet and voices in a swirling soulful sound that worked very well for Byrd's career! Byrd's sparkling trumpet fronts a tight septet that includes Hank Mobley, Herbie Hancock, and Kenny Burrell – and which is backed by arrangements by Coleridge Perkinson and Duke ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Donald ByrdOff To The Races (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1958. Used ... $13.99
Donald's off to the races on this one – grooving with a lean, mean sound that makes the record one of his hardest-hitting and most soulful blue note sessions of the 50s! The group features Byrd's frequent bandmate Pepper Adams on baritone sax – blowing always with a style that's a ... read more CD
(Please note that there is some writing in pen inside the booklet.)

Donald ByrdRoyal Flush (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1961. Used ... $9.99
One of the seminal sides cut by Donald Byrd in his partnership with Pepper Adams – a high-up, low-down set that's a smoker all the way through! Byrd's brightness on trumpet is nicely matched by Adams' fluid work on baritone sax – and the pair are wonderfully supported by a rhythm trio ... read more CD
