- Don ByasReview by Simon Sez
That was a real pity for with his big Coleman Hawkins-type tone and his very fluent playing, Byas was a giant. On this Inner City CD, he is in the spotlight during 1953-55, playing with such notables as pianists Mary Lou Williams and Beryl Booker. While Byas is warm on ballads, he really rips his way through the faster material, almost recalling Lew Tabackin. You can almost imagine the smoke coming out of his horn when he played double-time runs!
Simon Sez: Don Byas (IC7018) features the great if forgotten tenor in the 1950s, ripping through uptempo numbers and melting hearts on the ballads.
