The Blackbyrds The Blackbyrds on LP

Trumpeter Donald Byrd always had a keen ear for talent. He discovered Herbie Hancock in the early-60s and, a decade later, organized six of his students at Howard University into a band he called the Blackbyrds, after his then-recent hit fusion album, Black Byrd. They were masters of jazz-funk fusion or "acid jazz," as it's known today, but also had strong pop sensibilities. Their self-titled debut contained the No. 23 R&B, No. 69 pop single "Do It, Fluid," while the second yielded an across-the-board smash in the No. 4 R&B, No. 6 pop "Walking in Rhythm." Rare grooves from Blackbyrd albums have been widely sampled by such hip-hop artists as Queen Latifah and UTFO among others.
