Donald Byrd,Probably for most of us ,our first introduction the “The Mizell Sound”

.In the early 1970's, Larry and Fonce Mizell moved to California to start their own company, Sky High Productions. They went on to produce albums for Blue Note Records that set the tone for jazz fusion and the era, including: Donald Byrd's Black Byrd (1972), Street Lady (1973), Stepping into Tomorrow (1974), Places and Spaces (1975) and Caricatures (1976), Bobbi Humphrey's Blacks and Blues (1973), Satin Doll (1974) and Fancy Dancer (1975), and Johnny "Hammond" Smith's Gambler's Life (1974) and Gears (1975).

 

 

 

 

The Mizell Brothers often used the same musicians on their albums, including Harvey Mason on drums, Melvin "Wah Wah Watson" Ragin and David T. Walker on guitar, Chuck Rainey on bass and Jerry Peters on piano. Freddie Perren and Chuck Davis were sometimes involved as co-writers or co-producers wp
