My deepest condolences and prayers go out to all of Dr. Byrd's family.
My first memories of Dr. Byrd begin in the 70's, being a kid who loved music; and hearing "Rock Creek Park" on the radio.
When he taught at North Carolina Central University, in the 80's, I had great opportunities to see him perform with his 125th Street band.
Later on, I was blessed to be able to stand next to the man, play music, and get to know him during the Jazzmatazz tours in the 90's. I have some very fond memories from those days....some great lessons and great stories.
Dr. Byrd, thank you for your great music, your mentorship, and some beautiful memories I have and will cherish forever. R.I.P.
