Alternative Fox presents a reissue of Donald Byrd's The Cat Walk, originally issued in 1962. Detroit-born trumpeter Donald Byrd was one of the most expressive players on his instrument. Recording for leading jazz labels such as Savoy and Blue Note from the late '50s, he collaborated with Cannonball Adderley, Lee Morgan, John Coltrane, and Herbie Hancock. The 1962 Blue Note release The Cat Walk was a critical success; most songs were written by pianist Duke Pearson, who also makes a crucial musical contribution, along with understated drummer Philly Joe Jones, relaxed strolling bass from Laymon Jackson, and rousing sax from longstanding collaborator, Pepper Adams.
