Donald Byrd - Street Lady LP


Pickup currently unavailable at Appleton Store

Donald Byrd was an American jazz and rhythm & blues trumpeter, vocalist, composer and bandleader. In his early career he was one of the few hard bop musicians exploring funk and soul while remaining true to his jazz roots. His 1973 album Street Lady was produced by Larry Mizell and contains the classic jazz-funk tracks ''Lansana's Priestress'' and ''Street Lady''. Personnel on the album includes Fonce Mizell (Larry's brother) on clavinet, trumpet, vocals and Harvey Mason on drums. Some of the songs on this record were later sampled by such artists as Jungle Brothers, Del the Funky Homosapien, and Theo Parrish amongst others. The classic jazz-funk affair is available here on 180g vinyl LP housed in the original replica gatefold sleeve.
