Donald Byrd -Byrd in Flight (Tone Poet Edition)
Released in 1960, the joyous soloing of 'Byrd In Flight' showcased the exceptional talents of trumpeter Donald Byrd, backed by an all-star band of Hank Mobley (tenor sax), Jackie Mclean (alto sax), Duke Pearson (piano), Doug Watkins and Reggie Workman (both bass) and Lex Humphries (drums). Coinciding with its sixtieth anniversary, the Blue Note label has remastered this notable early jazz tome for a heavyweight vinyl reissue.
Analog transfer on audiophile vinyl.
Blue Note Tone Poet Series
The Blue Note Tone Poet Series was born out of Blue Note President Don Was’ admiration for the exceptional audiophile Blue Note LP reissues presented by Music Matters. Was brought Joe Harley (from Music Matters), a.k.a. the “Tone Poet,” on board to curate and supervise a series of reissues from the Blue Note family of labels.
Extreme attention to detail has been paid to getting these right in every conceivable way, from the jacket graphics and printing quality to superior LP mastering (direct from the master tapes) by Kevin Gray to superb 180 gm audiophile LP pressings by Record Technology Inc. Every aspect of these Blue Note/Tone Poet releases is done to the highest possible standard. It means that you will never find a superior version. This is IT.
Blue Note Records’ Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series is produced by Joe Harley and features all-analog, mastered-from-the-original-master-tape 180g audiophile vinyl reissues in deluxe gatefold packaging. Mastering is by Kevin Gray (Cohearent Audio) and vinyl is manufactured at Record Technology Incorporated (RTI).
