Jazz for January

If you like Bitches Brew, or late-60s Miles in general, then I highly recommend the Donald Byrd album. I can't say that this album sounds like Bitches Brew, because it doesn't. However, for some reason, it just reminds me of Bitches Brew...can't explain it.

Please say thanks and please report any broken links.

Thanks for these. I have been a great fan of the Modern Jazz Quartet for years. This is my first taste of Donald Byrd. Thanks for introducing me to his great music.
