This will be the first public tribute of his musical genius and legacy in the Los Angeles area since his passing 6 years ago. The Donald Byrd Acoustic & Electric Sessions will bring together Johnny Britt (trumpet recording artist), Dominique Toney (songstress) and Kevin Toney (2 X Grammy nominated and founding member of “The Blackbyrds”) along with an All -Star Band. Dr. Don Mizell, Grammy – winning producer, who worked with Byrd in the late 70’s at his Elektra Jazz Fusion Imprint, will serve as MC /host for this signature event. Concert will highlight his truly remarkable creative legacy by presenting music that showcases the full gamut of his work from straight ahead acoustic bebop to the fresh jazz soul fusion innovations of the Mizell Brothers music with him.
