Don ByasAmericans Swinging In Paris – Gloria ... CD
EMI (France), Late 40s. Used ... $4.99
It's no secret that Don Byas made some of his best recordings in Europe, not America – and this tasty little CD is great support of that fact! The set features a dozen numbers that Byas cut in Paris at the end of the 40s – working with a mixture of American and Parisian players that ... read more CD

Don ByasJazz Free & Easy (Regent) ... LP
Regent, Early 50s. Very Good ... $36.99
Nice album that features some great swinging sides by tenorist Byas – a true giant in his own right, but a player who wasn't that often recorded in small group sides like these. The tracks have that nicely rough Savoy feel, with good room for Byas to solo, and a focus on strong straight ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label Regent pressing with deep groove – heavy, and nice and clean. Vinyl has a very short click on one cut, but overall is great – more VG+. Cover is nice too.)

Don ByasJazz In Paris – Laura ... CD
Universal (France), 1950/1951/1952. Used ... $4.99
Tenorist Don Byas is one of those players who always seemed to get more recognition in Europe than the US – or if that's not entirely the case, he at least got more chances to record properly than he ever did over here! This excellent 18 track CD features tunes from 3 early 50s sessions that ... read more CD

✨✧ Billy ByersJazz Workshop (purple cover) ... LP
RCA, 1955. Very Good- ... $14.99
A wonderful entry in the Jazz Workshop series on RCA – and proof that the line of releases was definitely worth the promise of its title! Billy Byers was a well-known mainstream arranger at the time of this set – but here, he steps out in territory that's a bit more modern than usual ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1964. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
Charlie Byrd gets some top-shelf treatment here – in a wonderful album of tunes by Antonio Carlos Jobim, all recorded with full backing arrangements, and sound quality that's a lot better than some of Byrd's previous albums!

Charlie ByrdGuitar Artistry Of Charlie Byrd ... LP
Riverside, 1960. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Artistry is a word that's not used lightly here – as the album gives Charlie Byrd plenty of space to show off his deepest talents on the acoustic guitar – in a spare trio setting with Keter Betts on bass and the lesser-known Buddy Deppenschmidt on drums! The format is one that was rare ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charlie ByrdSolo Flight ... LP
Riverside, 1965. Near Mint- ... $8.99
Key solo work from Charlie Byrd – a record that features his playing on acoustic guitar, and no other accompaniment – bravely recorded at a time when most players of his nature were shifting towards larger arrangements.

Blue Note, 1973. New Copy ... $6.99 9.98
A landmark album – Donald Byrd's first session with producer Larry Mizell, the man who went onto forever change the face of jazz funk!

Donald ByrdByrd In Paris (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Brunswick/Sam Records (France), 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

Donald ByrdElectric Byrd ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99
Donald Byrd in a sweet electric mode – as you'd guess from the title! The set was recorded right before Byrd's legendary run with Larry Mizell in the early 70s – and the electric approach is a bit different here – a style that blends Byrd's wonderful trumpet lines with the larger ... read more CD

✨✧ Donald ByrdEthiopian Knights ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99
Sweet electric funk – in a very trippy style! Before Donald Byrd hooked up with Larry Mizell and started recording his smooth fusion grooves of the mid 70's, he recorded this gem – kind of a "lost" album that has Donald working in an open-ended electric sound – one that' ... read more CD

Donald ByrdFancy Free ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $18.99
One of the coolest, grooviest 60s albums from trumpeter Donald Byrd – one that has him really reaching out for a hip new sound, but in ways that are different than most of his other material at the time! Key on the date is the placement of electric piano from Duke Pearson – played in ... read more CD

Donald ByrdI'm Tryin' To Get Home ... LP
Blue Note, 1965. Very Good ... $48.99
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!

A fantastic set of tracks that was recorded at the cusp of the 70s, but which wasn't (for some strange reason) released until many years later! Donald Byrd's playing here with two different larger groups, and the music is a perfect bridge between his spacey late 60s attempts to mimic Miles Davis, ... read more CD
