Donald Byrd - Stepping Into Tomorrow (2000) Retail CD
The follow-up to 1974's Street Lady, Stepping into Tomorrow is one of those albums disgruntled jazz lovers may hate, but it definitely helped Byrd continue his crossover success. Tacitly ethnocentric and experimental, the album shows great chemistry between artist and producer (the Mizell brothers, Fonce and Larry). The title track, with its chanted vocals and skilled support playing, provided an atmosphere for Byrd to offer some emotive and complex riffs. On that track, as well as the comforting "Design a Nation," Byrd trades solos with alto saxophonist Gary Bartz. "Think Twice" has a mellifluousmore… bridge that has warm keyboard playing from Jerry Peters and Larry Mizell. But despite the good tracks, there is far too much filler. "Rock and Roll Again" does neither and features James Carter's loved or hated whistled solos. "You Are the World," however, is another strong track and has that classic Mizell production style. The last track, "I Love the Girl," closes this effort on a ho-hum note. Although it isn't going to make any short list of straight-ahead jazz classics, Stepping into Tomorrow is a solid example of the Blue Note 's early-'70s commercial sound.
