Donald Byrd

I can't even choose a favorite cut by this great trumpet player & band leader. Go to You Tube search his name. He was a giant of straight ahead jazz & a funk innovator. Most hip hop fans  probably never heard of him, but I can almost guarantee that if you looked at a hip hop artist's  record collection, you'd find a stack of Donald Byrd in it, in vinyl.
