Correct Genre Please!!! Another Lost Gem

First of all this is not pop, this is jazz. One of two classic gems from Donald Byrd with his 125 Street, N.Y.C projects. The other being the Love Byrd album. This along with the Love Byrd usher in the fusion/R&B/funk sound that began to dominate the '80s.

Donald Byrd agains show his understanding of the times. From his hard bop of the 50's and 60's, to the groundbreaking Black Byrd album in the 70's, to the Love Byrd album in the '80's, to his triumphant return to bop in the 90's, Donald Byrd has stood the test of time. So iTunes let'sget the catgeory correct on this please!!!

Pretty sure this isn't Jazz either

I would file this under R&B/Soul a la late 70s EW&F
