Blue Note legends like Grant Green, Horace Silver, and Jimmy Smith often looked to the church for musical inspiration, but trumpeter Donald Byrd presented A New Perspective with his magnificent 1963 album for band and voices which wove the essence of spirituals into modern jazz. In collaboration with composer and arranger Duke Pearson, Byrd assembled an ensemble with tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley, pianist Herbie Hancock, guitarist Kenny Burrell, vibraphonist Donald Best, bassist Butch Warren, drummer Lex Humphries, and a choir under the direction of Coleridge Perkinson. The result was one of Byrd’s most popular albums, an uplifting and deeply soulful hybrid that delivers many memorable highlights including Byrd’s spirited opener “Elijah” and Pearson’s stirring compositions “Cristo Redentor” and “Chant.”

This Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition is stereo, all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.
