Donald Byrd – Royal Flush


In the early 1960s, long before he’d pursue a funkier, electric direction, Donald Byrd was one of the leading trumpeters on the American jazz scene. Recorded in autumn 1961, Royal Flush is hard-swinging and deep-grooving hard bop. It does, however, point to aspects of jazz’s future contributed by a young Herbie Hancock and the inventive drumming of Billy Higgins.
