I'm not usually a jazz fan, but I really liked this album. It's relaxing without being sleepy, energetic without being frantic. You can tell Byrd is immensely talented, too. I like how some effects were mixed in with the trumpet playing to give some tunes a modern feel, while the playing always stayed true to jazz roots. Great stuff here and because of it, I'll be sure to check out more jazz in the future!
Nothing better after a long stressful day than listening to the great tunes it is one of the only albums that I can listen to with my dad and we both love it.
Serious Soul Food
At times playful and whimsical, then serious and moody, Winston Byrd is nothing short of spectacular on “Soul Searching.” This man can seriously blow! He's got the lighting chops to get the notes out fast and furious, but also knows when to leave space and slow it down.
Byrd's backing band is also active enough to keep the groove up and rolling along without taking the spotlight off of his instinctive and energetic horn playing. He can be sweet and nostaligc when the track calls for it as on “Alfie" or inspired and fun as on “Byrd's Night 'Out’”. Overall, the flow is smooth and confident and sometimes surprising, especially when Byrd hits those soaring high notes that just make you smile.
