Mentored and produced by the great jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd, the group had the biggest single of their career with 'Walking In Rhythm.'
Recorded in May and June 1969, the album made its debut on Billboard's Best Selling Jazz LPs chart on 3 January 1970.
The single came from his new Blue Note album of the time, 'Places and Spaces.'
This week we have new releases from The Blackbyrds, John Lee Hooker, Marvin Gaye, Spooky Tooth and Van Der Graaf Generator!
The Blackbyrds signed with Fantasy Records in 1973 and the following year they released their debut album, featuring a Vincent Van Gogh inspired design.
