Song Of The Day – Donald Byrd – Falling Like Dominoes

Cover of "Places & Spaces"

I heard this song in a tapas bar in Barcelona and it blew us away.  The song is off a Donald Byrd album, “Places and Spaces” and was released in 1975.  Donald was born in 1932 and has recorded since the 1950’s.  An accomplished trumpet player, he has over 46 albums to his credit and many more as a sideman to such artists as Kenny Clarke, Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane.  We need more players like this to be in the forefront of music.  Makes a lot of today’s talent look imbecilic, doesn’t it.

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.
