April 22 - Jazz Trumpeter - Winston Byrd

The great Duke Ellington once poignantly observed that jazz is a jealous mistress. It also appears that jazz has been a highly charismatic mistress as well, with apparently eternal seductive powers of captivating ongoing generations of her highly talented and dedicated musical disciples. One of the latest of these young disciples of today’s current fusion period in jazz can be found in the powerhouse trumpet wizardry of Winston Byrd.

Winston has palyed with anybody and everybody in the music world.  The list include Usher, Patti Austin, The Count Bassie Orchestra, Chaka Khan, Diane Schurr, Shirley Horn, Chucho Valdes, David “Fathead” Newman, Abbey Lincoln, T.S. Monk, and the Charles Mingus Big Band, James Moody, Paquito D’ Rivera, and many many others.
