The Jaki Byard Experience

Year : 1968
Label : Prestige
Genre : Jazz

Huge classic of Prestige label considered as a masterpiece in the history of Jazz which explores almost all every style that the Jazz known. Peformed by a excellent quartet which associates Jaky Byard and one of Jazz Giant, the multi intrumentalist, Roland Kirk, both surrounded by engineer Rudy Van Gelder. It's the second collaboration between the two geniuses who play as well as in New Orleans style, Hard Bop or Spiritual Jazz (Gospel), all combining with some free improvisations by the band. Introduced by a great variation of Bud Powell' Parisian Thoroughfare, the track listing includes the brilliant Hazy Eye composed by Jaki Byard, the magnificient traditional Shine On MeEvidence of Thelonius Monk, and two duets with Roland Kirk (Memories Of You) and Richard Davis (Hazy Eye).
