Review

Review Text Early Byrd: The Best of the Jazz Soul Years contains a selection of nine tracks from Donald Byrd's mid-'60s recordings, bypassing his funkier fusions of the late '60s and early '70s. These songs -- including such numbers as "Slow Drag," "Jellyroll," "Mustang," "Blackjack" and "The Dude" -- feature the trumpeter at his grittiest and funkiest. Fans of his early hard bop years will still find enough improvisation here to make it interesting, while latter-day fans will find enough grooves. It's a solid introduction to one of Byrd's most prolific periods. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
