Donald Byrd is a stunning trumpeter and the band match his prowess on this record. The writing is also eaquisite. It is a soulful, funked up jazz and in places some of the best that I have listened to. I played this to friends at house parties who have been equally blown away. But also had friends deeply unimpressed by it.
These friends are wrong, this is an astounding sounding record really cool and funky. Great stuff.

Imagine if John Shaft and SuperFly took over the Blue Note Jazz Club. The result would be Donald Byrd's 'Street Lady'. Donald and producer Larry Mizell were obviously taking (Blue)notes from Isaac Hayes and Curtis Mayfield when conceiving this album; its shows all through the recording. They enlisted the now-legendary studio musicians Chuck Rainey(bass guitar) and Harvey Mason(drums) to lay down the pocket and boy, do they ever. From the driving groove of 'Lansana's Priestess' to the smoldering funk of 'Witch Hunt', the vibe(and vibraphone) is there. A masterfully arranged funktaperstry that give's Byrd's trumpet and Roger Glenn's flute plenty of freedom to flow over, under, and through. No small wonder that many Acid Jazz musicians have used this record as a framework/archetype for their own music. If you're into lounging or just like that 70s Soul sound, I highly recommend this recording.

This is one Donald Byrd's best albums to date. The style of music which he has combined is the utmost sound ever. He has a great group of Producers, and a great band to back him up. I recommend this album to anyone. Listen to songs like: Miss Kane, and Witch Hunt.
The art work is fantastic, that is why it is called "Street Lady.
Get this album, and add it to your collection.

This is the album that's going to get me into jazz-funk. I own a lot of jazz-fusion records but not much jazz-funk. This one is filled with pure soul and I absoutly love it. I've played the B-side about 4 times in a row one day, which my two favorite tracks are on, Witch Hunt and Woman of the World. The music in this record just fills you with joy and this is the type of jazz that you just sit back, close your eyes and let the music take you away. I'm now on the hunt for more Donald Byrd albums and ones like it. Beautiful!
