Bebop trumpeter Donaldson Byrd was a member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers during the early 1950s.

Byrd has served as a role model and mentor to other musicians, in particular Herbie Hancock.

He also bares the distinction of being a successful pioneer of funk and soul while still maintaining his career as a jazz artist.
