Trumpet titan Donald Byrd gained his greatest fame in the 1970s when he recorded a series of commercially successful funk/R&B albums for Blue Note. 1972's Ethiopian Knights is the culmination of the innovative sound that Byrd put forth on Fancy Free, Electric Byrd and Kofi. Combining L.A. studio musicians with Bobby Hutcherson and Harold Land and the Jazz Crusaders' Joe Sample and Wilton Felder, Byrd paints sonic pictures that draw from the textures of Miles Davis's In a Silent Way and African music as well as jazz, funk and fusion. These colorful performance sound as lively, lyrical and hip today as they did nearly half century ago.
