Today’s episode is a mixed bag of great talent. German bassist Eberhard Weber is featured on two selections.
Trumpet player Donald Byrd who was also a dentist is featured on the Monk classic Round Midnight. His rich warm tone is on display for all to enjoy. This is one trumpet player I have been listening to for decades. I always felt he always flew under the radar so to speak.
The one and only Chet Baker is also featured and although we only get to listen to one track, hopefully there are listeners out there who might appreciate his sense of timing and gorgeous tone.
