This was recorded June 12, 2013 at the 92Y Tribeca in New York, N.Y. and includes one of my favorite drummers Pheeroan ak Laff.
Byron was born on November 8th, 1958 in the Bronx, New York City. His father played bass for Calypso bands. He himself took up the clarinet as a therapy for asthma (a disease that effects many children in NYC due to the concentrated car exhaust in the streets there.)
He studied music at the New England Conservatory in Boston and is at home in many musical settings including a stint in Hankus Netsky's Klezmer Conservatory Band.
