Donald Byrd performs ‘Blackbyrd’ // Montreux Jazz Festival

February 26, 2013

Shortly after Donald Byrd’s passing, GP emailed Don Was (CEO, Blue Note) to enquire after the recording of Byrd’s legendary session at Montreux in 1973. Gilles had the DVD (what you see below), but Blue Note had the recording. It had remained in their vaults until GP reminded them of it (see Don Was’ post here).

Here’s part 2 of Donald Byrd performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1973. Donald and the band play ‘Blackbyrd’. Check the video below.
