DON BYRON picture
Don Byron (b.1958) is a U.S. composer and clarinettist. While he is considered a jazz musician, he is stylistically very adventurous, having recorded klezmer music, German lieder, and cartoon music.

Byron was born on 8th November 1958in the Bronx, New York City, and was raised by his parents who were themselves musicians, his mother a pianist, his father a bass player for calypso bands. His parents raised him listening to all kinds of music, taking him on trips to the ballet and the symphony, and also exposing him to jazz such as Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis records.

Byron studied music at the New England Conservatory in Boston. He is a gifted performer on clarinet and (occasionally) saxophone, but on many of his albums subordinates his own playing to the exploration of a particular style. Byron is one of jazz's greatest practising historians, and some of his most successful albums

DON BYRON Nu Blaxploitation

Album · 1998 · Eclectic Fusion
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Rokukai
Nu Blaxploitation tries to do exactly what the title implies--update the blaxploitation style to fit the current jazz market. Byron mixes classic and nu r&b into his patented adventurous, avant framework.

I've tried really hard to get into this album, but it's just not my style. It's great how Byron quotes Mandrill and covers Mango Meat, Fencewalk, and Hagalo, but the avant aspect on many of the tunes are just a little far out for my taste. I suspect there's a large audience who really loves this well executed album, but it's difficult listening at times, Domino and Schizo seem to ramble endlessly and the puzzle pieces just don't fit.

The coup de grace for me is the cover of the Hendrix classic "If 6 was 9". Byron pulls out all the stops on this one, making one of the definitive recordings of the oft-covered song, and a great update for the new century.
