Theo Parrish’s 1996 seminal debut EP Baby Steps finally sees its digital release. It originally came out on Parrish’s first label Elevate and was reissued on vinyl by his Sound Signature imprint in 2004, which now also houses the digital version of the record that started the Detroit legends’ career. ‘Early Byrd’ takes its main theme from Donald Byrd’s ‘Lansana’s Priestess’, sequencing its trumpet and chopping up its vocals and showcasing the master’s funky lo-fi production style. ‘Walking Thru The Sky’ seems sparse compared to the opener, putting an emphasis on its simple drums and jamming fender Rhodes chords, whereas the string drone and prancing bass tones of the closer resume the driving, funky atmosphere.
