Byrd's Word! is an early Charlie Byrd recording that finds the guitarist in a variety of settings. The idea seems to be showcasing Byrd with a number of friends, including valve trombonist Bobby Felder, tenor saxophonist Buck Hill, and pianist Tee Carson. Though there are really no bad cuts on the album, the content is so diverse – acoustic trios, electric guitar with brass, and acoustic guitar with vocals – that the album doesn't flow as a whole. Byrd's Word" opens the album, with a big brassy sound, complete with Byrd cutting loose on electric guitar

Charlie Byrd: Byrd's Word by Derek Taylor, published on December 1, 2000. The album is a mixed bag that suffers some from what seems like a forced diversity of material. On all but three of the numbers Byrd wields amplified strings instead of his usual acoustic ones. Five tracks feature him fronting a sextet with the flexible horns of Hill and Felder. Two more, Blue Turning Grey Over You and Don’t Explain team him with his wife in vocal/acoustic guitar duets.

Before making his mark with several fine Blue Note albums from the late '50s and throughout the '60s (his stay with the label continued until 1978), trumpeter Donald Byrd got his start with several blowing dates for Savoy, Prestige, and a few other independents. This 1955 date for Savoy pitted Byrd with Basie alum and tenor saxophonist Frank Foster, pianist Hank Jones, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Kenny Clarke.
