Newly Remastered for Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl!

A New Perspective is a 1963 album by jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd released on the Blue Note label as BLP 4124 and BST 84124. The performances are mainly in a hard bop style, but the recording also features a gospel choir. On this release, Byrd is joined by Hank Mobley, Herbie Hancock, Kenny Burrell, Donald Best, Butch Warren, and Lex Humphries.

Newly remastered for vinyl as part of an overall Blue Note 75th anniversary vinyl reissue campaign spearheaded by current Blue Note Records President, Don Was.

"This unusual set was one of the most successful uses of a gospel choir in a jazz context... The arrangements by Duke Pearson are masterful...This is a memorable effort that is innovative in its own way, a milestone in Donald Byrd's career." -Scott Yanow,
