Originally released in 1972 on the iconic Blue Note label, Ethiopian Knights saw celebrated American trumpeter Donald Byrd playing with other stellar musicians such as Harold Land, Bobby Hutcherson and Joe Sample. This vinyl re-issue comes with a raft of unseen photographs and brand new liner notes.
Chant was the second studio album by legendary trumpet parper Donald Byrd. Recorded in 1961 it features a young Herbie Hancock on piano and as well as several originals there are takes on tunes by Duke Ellington and Duke Pearson. Strangely, the album wasn't released officially until 1979 but as if making up for lost time Blue Note have spared no expense with this 180g edition re-mastered from the original tapes and in luxury gatefold sleeve.
