CD Reviews

John M. | 05/04/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The title of the 1957 session was originally called JAZZ EYES with no specific leader. It was re-issued in 1970 under Donald Byrd's name as STAR EYES although Altoist John Jenkins wrote 3 of the tunes. It's a typical Blue Note-like blowing session with Byrd,Jenkins and Curtis Fuller soloing on all tracks. The rhythm section was led by Tommy Flanagan.-- Two tracks Orpheus and Honeylike as well as a different version of Star Eyes and a couple of other tunes with Frank Foster on Tenor Sax from the BYRD'S WORD session appear on the Donald Byrd CD - TIMELESS."
