Trumpeter Isaac Byrd, Jr. returns to talk about his new release, Life. Life features the catchy dance-pop party song ?The Come Up? and the title track ?Life?, which features members of Tribe Judah and reflects the emotional transitions he has faced in recent years to be able to blossom now as a confident person and performer. Another irresistible track is the coolly soulful ?Dreams?, which features Byrd's sensual muted trumpet melody floating over graceful piano harmonies and an easy grooving percussion line.
