My latest album

Truth Raised Twice

Warren Byrd

In cart Not available Out of stock

This album--a straight-ahead jazz manifesto--cooks after 20 years on a back burner—a grand release of stellar pianist/composer Warren Byrd's self-produced late-20th Century testament of Greater-NYC jazz in Southern New England. A burnin' montage of esteemed standards and evocative originals from Byrd's pen gingered by Warren's Monk-kissed hard- swinging piano, a carousel of killin' cohorts--including bassist Stephen King Porter and sounds from celebrated saxophonists Kris Allen and Johnathan Ball—"Truth Raised Twice" buffets a post-modern bebop dish of diverse and sincere vibes to get us right.

Friday May 15th I re-released my first album 'Truth Raised Twice', a jazz CD with originals and standards. It was recorded in 1997 and 1999 and self-released on my label Byrdspeak. The first release party took place in the legendary Club 880 in Hartford April 22, 2000 but was limited to sales at gigs. Now I want to create the opportunity for more people to enjoy this CD with then young talent, representing an era in the American jazz development. I have made the album officially available for sale online as a physical album and via downloads, streaming channels like Spotify, Apple Music etc. See above the press release and further info. Sincerely jazzy yours, Warren Byrd

quote by Ken Laster for WWUH

(May 14, 2020) I really dig the album. Captures your playing back in the day. I’ve always said that your piano playing, always exudes a sense of joy and happiness. That comes through in this recording too
