Carlos Wesley (Don) Byas (October 21, 1912–August 24, 1972) was a jazz tenor saxophonist born in Muskogee, Oklahoma, in the United States. Although his long residence in Europe kept him out of the public eye in the United States, he is a significant influence on later players of his instrument. Early life (1912-1932) Both of Byas' parents were musical: his mother played the piano and father the clarinet. Byas started his training in classical music, first on the violin, then on the clarinet and finally on the alto saxophone, which he played until the end of the 1920s.

Don Byas was a giant of the tenor sax, though his accomplishments were all but overlooked in his native land once he moved to Europe for good. This CD from Universal Music's Jazz in Paris series compiles three separate studio sessions from the early '50s, all with different rhythm sections. Most of the tracks are standard ballads, featuring the leader throughout. His expressive take of "Laura" shows off a big tone with a bit of vibrato much like Ben Webster in his later years

Don Byas: Laura by Mike Neely, published on July 9, 2009. Laura is a compilation of several recordings made by Byas between 1950 and 1952. This is Byas in a swing mode, playing slow to moderate tempo standards and ballads, and he is nothing short of magnificent. His playing is lavishly creative and sensual, with a background strain of melancholy. This is romantic swing music with Byas's sax front and center, singing out line after line of beautifully constructed tenor solos.
