    She was a good addition. Bernadette, um..., not so much. There are a lot of funny moments in the show and it's probably one of the best shows in syndication.

    Donald Byrd - Blackjack

    A change of pace, one of Byrd's last hard-bop dates. Lots of listening today as I'm trying to clean the house.
