Last Saturday while doing the Back To Niceness show the thought we could easily do a full Donald Byrd tribute show pop into our minds. While preparing our show and checking more Donald Byrd records we decided to go for it and play nothing put original tunes, related projects, covers and tunes that sampled the man’s work. So here’s a 1 hour long reminder of Donald Byrd greatness and legacy with some of our favourite tracks with his touch on them.
For a good recap of his life check this.
