Donald Byrd & Pepper Adams - Motor City Scene

Donald Byrd & Pepper Adams - Motor City Scene

Subscription Save


Pepper Adams was not only one of the most consistently imaginative musicians in jazz, he also had a rare capacity to write, arrange and execute. A musician with a background of years of studying and writing, he played with such outstanding orchestras as Stan Kenton’s and Benny Goodman’s. Adams won the New Star Award in the 1957 Down Beat Critics Poll; this brought him the leadership that he shared with trumpe. ter and featured member Donald Byrd. The baritone horn gained prestige and respect as a solo horn not only from musicians Pepper Adams, Harry Carney, Serge Chaloff, and Gerry Mulligan, but also from the non-professional listener.

Motor City Scene consists of five compositions. The first side opens with a standard written by Hoagy Carmichael that brings to front rumpeter Donald Byrd, followed by “Philson”, one of two tracks here in which Pepper Adams spotlights his ability as a writer. (The second is “Libeccio”.) This gathering of top notch soloists makes for an assortment of highly listenable jazz. It is truly Pepper Adams & Donald Byrd at their best!

Drift Recommends

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
