Places & Spaces: Vinyl LP3596800
Label: Decca / Blue Note
Release Date: 19th November
One of the most essential records you could ever pick up. I don't even think I need to say much more, even if you go in on this blind, I don't think there's a chance you'd regret picking this up.
For those who dig: soul, funk, jazz, LIFE!
Donald Byrd’s 1975 album Places and Spaces featuring the hits “Wind Parade” and “Dominoes” was the culmination of the great trumpeter’s fusion period. It was the fifth consecutive Byrd album to be produced by visionary producer Larry Mizell, and the second to last session Byrd would cut for Blue Note, the label he had recorded for since 1958 that had followed him along his remarkable evolution from top-notch hard bop trumpeter to pioneer of R&B/Funk fusion. This Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.
