The reed-player and jazz composer/interpreter Don Byron’s New Gospel Quintet routinely raises roofs and brings audiences almost involuntarily to their feet. Vocalist D. K. Dyson can be as smoldering and subtle as she wants to be, but when she gets worked up and possessed, the stage literally cannot contain her. Some of the most poignant and unusual moments of the concert that I saw, in fact, came when the reserved and stolid Byron gently implored Dyson to keep a lid on it and save some for later. Well, no one can tame the wild streak of the Holy Spirit, but when it is Don Byron talking, I suppose that the Holy Spirit at least listens.
