Donald Byrd's Death a Mystery


I've learned via The Guardian, LondonJazz and several other online sources of the death of Donald Byrd. According to Byrd's nephew the influential trumpet player died on Monday (Feb. 4), aged 80, in Delaware. Yet, for some mysterious reason, details are being withheld 

Byrd was one of the cornerstones of the Blue Note and played on many of that illustrious label's most popular jazz LPs of the '50s and '60s. Sonny Rollins, Art Blakey, Hank Mobley, Lou Donaldson, Stanley Turrentine and many more benefited from having Donald Byrd in the line-up. He also led a more contemporary band Donald Byrd and the Blackbyrds.
Check out his discography.
.When the story breaks, and I'm sure there is one we will keep you informed.
