Oval Lawn Series: Don Byron Plays Junior Walker

Multi-instrumentalist and Pulitzer finalist Don Byron continues his role as musical historian and adventurer as he celebrates the legacy of Motown soul legend, Junior Walker. “Calling Don Byron a jazz musician is like calling the Pacific wet — it just doesn’t begin to describe it. Byron has carpentered an extraordinary career precisely by obliterating the very idea of category.” (TIME Magazine)
