Street Lady...
D. S. HARDEN | L.A.,CA USA | 09/24/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Street Lady is a eclectic mix of contemporay jazz tunes that one can sit and listen to. My favorite cuts are "Street Lady" and "Lansanas Street Priestess!" I suggest that you take a chance of the collection! Oh, and by the way, those aren't ladies on the cover of the album! It took me years before I actually figured that one out!! Four Stars!"

"You can almost feel the heat off the Harlem (or neighbourhood) pavement from these tunes. There's a sultriness to these vibes that recalls hot summer breezes, just hanging out, and the natural horniness that days like that arouses. A very outdoor groove abounds here, with instrumentation and chord progressions that recall blaxploitation soundtracks, but with greater flair and always with the lightness of spirit and sheer delight in life that Byrd exhibits so flawlessly in his more upbeat offerings. Easy perhaps to overlook as a funky background music, it's actually an accomplished affair and another example of Byrd's mastery of creating atmosphere."

"This CD drips with Donald Byrd's 70's funk/smooth/jazz sound. Lansana's Priestess is the gem of the album. This was one of the albums that helped my transition to jazz. Very nice vocal harmonies on all tunes make this a keeper."
