Donald Byrd and 125th Street, NYC: Love Byrd (Warner Bros K52301)

Paul Sexton, Record Mirror, 17 October 1981

IT'S NOT just love that's come around for Donald Byrd. It's the music scene too, to the healthy state of affairs where he can have a red-hot import album rushed into the UK shops, where he can remind us of those regal trumpet skills, delegate to other talents, and still not compromise himself.

Total word count of piece: 198
