Don Byron has signed with Savoy Jazz and is gearing up for the release
of Love, Peace and Soul, the 12-track debut album by his New Gospel
Quintet. With jazz as his springboard, the virtuosic clarinetist and
saxophonist has turned his ear to gospel-music icons Thomas A. Dorsey
and Sister Rosetta Tharpe.
Playing alongside Byron are DK Dyson (vocals), Xavier Davis (piano,
backing vocals), Brad Jones (bass, backing vocals), Pheeroan Aklaff
(drums) and guests Brandon Ross and Vernon Reid (guitars), Dean Bowman
(vocals), Ralph Alessi (trumpet) and JD Parran (baritone saxophone).
Recorded at Harlem’s Stadium Red Studio, the album was produced by
Hans Wendl and engineered by Tom Lazarus, a team Byron has relied on
for many of his recordings.
