Donald Byrd (born Donaldson Toussaint L'Ouverture Byrd II) was one of the most consistent trumpeters to come out of the fertile Detroit jazz scene that emigrated to New York in the mid-'50s. Byrd possessed a beautiful, round, brassy tone often applied with intriguing ideas in intoxicating displays of exquisite jazz showmanship. 

This recording of a live radio broadcast captures Byrd early in his DC period while he was teaching (and studying law) at Howard University.
