Donald Byrd Quintet, Cannes, 1958

posted January 13, 2012
We've included this extraordinary footage to show Donald Byrd during the time that he had his on again/off again working quintet with Pepper Adams. So far, no footage has been discovered of the Byrd-Adams Quintet. That great band (see Donald Byrd-Pepper Adams Quintet on the homepage) was formed in earnest earlier that year (1958) when Byrd and Adams worked together with Thelonious Monk and then recorded under Pepper's leadership in April for Riverside. Doug Watkins was on that recording and he's here, as part of a superb rhythm section! Donald Byrd tp; Bobby Jaspar fl; Walter Davis Jr p; Doug Watkins b; Arthur Taylor dm.
