‘Mustang’ is a gem of a mid-60’s Soul Jazz album. Donald Byrd is in fine form, supplemented in the horn section Sonny Red (alto sax) and Hank Mobley (tenor sax), whilst pianist McCoy Tyner anchors the rhythm section. The strident, Motown-esque ‘Dixie Lee’ is a standout. ‘Mustang’, itself is a barnstormer and ‘Fly Little Bird Fly’ has a semi Coltrane feel on which Tyner feels most at home. Byrd’s own ‘I’m So Excited By You’ finishes this excellent album in rip-roaring style.
