Up With Donald Byrd (1964)


I thoroughly enjoyed Donarl Byrd's superb album, "Up With Donald Byrd", most especially the masterpiece House of the Rising Sun and My Babe. I have listened to a few the guy's albums and nothing quite comes close, in fact some are so bad that it's strange it's the same artist.

Anyways, I went onto the interwebs looking for like-minded people and found one who disagreed, calling it forgettable. Either that's a critic with a more sophisticated taste and much more listening experience, or she's got twisted taste. I was actually surprised since I'm even tempted to call this the best Jazz album yet!
