Never-Before-Released 1958 Live Recording On Mono 180g Vinyl LP!
Pressed by Optimal in Germany!

Donald Byrd's residency in Paris in 1958 to study with composer Nadia Boulanger gave rise to one of the greatest bands of his career with Bobby Jaspar on tenor sax and flute, Walter Davis, Jr. on piano, Doug Watkins on bass and Art Taylor on drums.

Sam Records is proud to present this previously unreleased concert by the Donald Byrd/Bobby Jaspar Quintet recorded during the evening dedicated to 'Modern Jazz' during the first and only Cannes Jazz Festival on July 11, 1958. The initiative for this festival was taken by Yvonne Blanc, a lady of good society who played the piano and lived between Paris and Cannes.

The festival was organized in partnership with the festival of Knokke-le-Zoute, in Belgium.
