4.0 out of 5 stars Another Byrd 70's classic
Another collaboration with the Mizell brothers and yet another classic Byrd 70's outing. The killer track on this CD being Street Lady, which just absolutely cooks. Other great tracks include Lansanna's priestess with some excellent flute complementing Byrd's trumpet and Witch Hunt a deep bassy groove. If you're a Byrd fan and you don't have this then go get it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable funky grooves
Not a bad album from the blaxploitation era. My favourite tracks are Lansana's Priestess, Miss Kane and Street Lady. Certainly not Byrd's best, but if you like his music from the 70s, you'll enjoy this one too.
I read somewhere those aren't actually ladies on the cover. If so, they are some of the best-looking cross-dressers I've ever seen!

5.0 out of 5 stars slick and street-smart 70s jazz-funk, 26 Mar 2010

This review is from: Street Lady (Audio CD)
The cover of this album doesn't really portray the sophistication and superb Mizell brothers production of this very slick jazz-fusion set. High-energy spacey backing vocals, grumbling bass lines straight out of a black action movie stake-out scene, tight drumming and piercing flute overlayed with moog synth and complex rhythms, an album for driving late at night, jetting around or just chilling...

5.0 out of 5 stars Bluenote Classic, 12 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Street Lady (Audio CD)
An excellent piece of 70's jazz-funk from legendary Bluenote trumpeter Donald Byrd, accompanied with a ten piece band including some brilliant flute playing from Roger Glenn and a superb production from Larry Mizell. A definitive album in the history of Bluenote jazz, a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spirit of the Age, 2 May 2013
This review is from: Street Lady (Audio CD)
I remember this year very well and this album sums up the mood of liberation and soulfulness that was in the air. The flute is resonant of Jethro Tull the guitar work is from that great man of rhythm, Davis T Walker, the trumpet playing is as good as any Miles Davis track. A superb evocation of the time.
