Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the original master tape

Plated and pressed at RTI

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.

A Donald Byrd treasure of an album recorded in 1961 that was almost left in the vaults by Blue Note, until they briefly released it in 1979. The cover and title are a bit unfamiliar, but the music is right up there with Byrd’s classic sessions with baritonist Pepper Adams – a great player here, with a deftness on his horn that’s incredible – matching all the sharp changes and soulful undercurrents of Byrd’s sparkling trumpet!
