Here's a further contribution from anonymous who brought us 'presenting Burton Greene '..many thanks .
There is unfortunately a lack of information about this online, and since it is unfamiliar I'm loathe to review it in any way.
What i can say though is that Barbara Donald was one of the the most original trumpet voices of her generation, her individual tone to my ears had much more in common with say a Fats Navarro than any of the more renown 'new thing trumpeter's'..
Donald sadly made only 2(to my knowledge) lp's under her own name..i have heard neither ,so thanks anon for the opportunity.
Most of us know her work largely through a sequence of Sonny Simmons lp's(whom she married in the mid 60's)beginning with 1966's 'staying on the watch'.
They remained friends after separating and continued their association performing together frequently in the late 80's and early nineties.
any one interested in more biographical info ,regarding Donald... can find a page devoted to her on Sonny Simmons website..here
