Paper sleeve, specially-priced limited edition of the "best of M&I jazz CDs" with only 1,000 copies pressed!

My Mother's Eyes is quite significant in Jaki Byard's discography. It is the legendary pianist's last recording, made about year before his passing. It is also his only big band album. Recorded in March 1998 and featuring the "Apollo Stompers", the album consists of six original compositions by Byard and his arrangements of well-known and lesser-known standards.

Byard's compositions and big band arrangements are characterized by their soulfulness and an effective use of thick harmonies and flowing contrapuntal lines. A must-have CD for fans of Jaki Byard!

Recorded in March 1998.
