vinylRecorded in 1959 at the legendary Van Gelder Studios in Hackensack, New Jersey, this is considered one of Donald Byrd's finest LPs. Byrd had a fruitful run in the late 1950s with the great baritone saxophonist Pepper Adams and here they are joined by tenor-man Charlie Rouse, and a great rhythm section like on 'Devil Whip', an energetic tune with a nice call-and response theme between the horns and the rhythm section. Here Byrd impresses with a few incredibly long phrases in his solo, however he still manages to play with very clear and logical phrasing. Other highlights are Frank Sinatra's 'Witchcraft', the self-penned blues 'Here I Am' and the Walter Davis written grooves 'Bronze Dance' and 'Clarion Calls'. TRACKLIST Side A 1. Witchcraft 2. Here I Am 3. Devil Whip Side B 1. Bronze Dance 2. Clarion Calls 3. The Injuns
