"... the baritone sax gives this combo a focus quite different from the standard trumpet and alto/tenor quintet ... Pearson, in particular, is a revelation."
- JazzTimes.com

"... a great band ... in sizzling form. There's a vigor and energy to this live recording ... includes Pepper Adams's nervy, wild sax and Duke Pearson's spritely piano."
- Wondering Sound

"These live tracks find Byrd hitting a peak in his first incarnation: virtuosic, bluesy, hard bop sprinter ... plenty is supplied by the fine baritone saxophonist Pepper Adams ... this album is an interesting glimpse of a jazz might-have-been."
- The Guardian

Recorded one Friday night in November 1960 at the Half Note in New York City, trumpeter Donald Byrd and his quintet of the day are captured at their peak on the first volume of this two-album live set. Features Byrd's regular sideman Pepper Adams on baritone sax and Duke Pearson on piano; both musicians have been singled out by critics over the years for their performances that night, preserved here for generations to enjoy.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
