donald byrd – ethiopian nights


Ethiopian Nights (1971)

Donald Byrd

One of my favorite trumpeters. If you´re into Miles’  “Bitches Brew” , you’re in for a treat. Ethiopian Nights has an all star line-up:

Donald Byrd (trumpet); Harold Land (tenor saxophone); Thurman Green (trombone); Bobby Hutcherson (vibraphone); William Henderson III (acoustic & electric pianos); Joe Sample (organ); Don Peake, Greg Poree, David T. Walker (guitar); Wilton Felder (electric bass); Edward Greene (drums); Bobbye Porter Hall (congas, tambourine).
