Mr. Donald Byrd was an icon. I listened to his "Walkin in Rhythm" and remembered my cousin who passed years ago. Mr. Byrd's quest for knowledge was admirable. Law degree, Master's in Music, Doctorate in Education and studying with Nadia Boulanger. Wow! I am impressed. I teach music in an elementary school and will remember Mr. Byrd this week as someone they should know. May his family be blessed and may Mr. Byrd rest in peace. His legacy will live on.
