Getting Down to Business is an album by trumpeter Donald Byrd featuring performances recorded in October 10 and 12, 1989 at the Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, NJ and released on the Landmark label (LLP/LCD 1523) the following year.
Trumpeter Donald Byrd's second jazz album during his comeback after years of playing R&B/funk and then totally neglecting his horn finds him starting to regain his former form. The strong supporting cast sometimes overshadows the leader on this CD but the music overall (modern hard bop) is rewarding.
