Your Thursday Breather



Stuck between two side long jazz fusion workouts on Donald Byrd's 1972 Blue Note release "Ethiopian Knights" is this lovely three minute piece of music called "Jamie." I love the whole record, but I really love how something this pretty becomes such a shock to the system when breaking up two raucous funk sessions. Seems like it should be the other way around.

Sweet!...I hear a hint of “Let It Be Me”....but that just might be me.

A quite lovely jazz track - and, as such, a quite lovely surprise! I can count on the fingers of one hand (if it was a fingerless hand) the number of Byrd tracks in my music collection. But now, one! Thanks for that. Cheers!
