    This! I already know the comment of the "real" trumpetplayers but this is IMO so incredible good trumpetplaying in a musical sense.
    Tone! Phrasing! Timing! Five stars+.



    I really like the looks AND the sound of the straight alto with curved bell of Kenny Garrett.

    Rediscovered this tune on Six Pieces of Silver this weekend. Donald Byrd does not seem to get talked about much but he is one of my favorites.

    Here is a story by Herbie Hancock that tells a lot about Donald Byrd and what he did for him in promoting him and introducing him to guys like Miles Davis.
