8 September 2016, No. 190, Donald Byrd, ‘Change (Makes You Want to Hustle)’

No. 190, Donald Byrd’s “Change (Makes You Want to Hustle),” was a weird one for the Ultimate Breaks and Beats comps because it doesn’t have a free drum break. The intro is somewhat useful, but it hasn’t been flipped all that much. DJ Jazzy Jeff put snippets of the tune to the best use, singling out an ill bit of trumpet solo for “A Touch of Jazz,” and maybe the reason it hasn’t seen much use elsewhere is that this particular disco-feeling jazz joint is better left on its own. Change!
