Donald Byrd And Gigi Gryce - Complete Jazz Lab

Primetime Jazz Feat. Donald Byrd & Gigi Gryce

Introduction

I go back to 1957 and feature 3 tracks from the wonderful release by trumpeter Donald Byrd and saxophonist Gigi Gryce entitled “Jazz Lab”. As well as some of my favourite older tunes I also feature several new releases firmly in the “bebop” style from Australia and around the world. There’s an electronic / rock jazz number from Melbourne 5 piece instrumental ensemble Cleverhorse that may have jazz purists slightly upset!
