|Donald Byrd chronology|
The Creeper is an album by American trumpeter Donald Byrd featuring Byrd with Sonny Red, Pepper Adams, Chick Corea, Miroslav Vitous, and Mickey Roker recorded in October 1967 but not released on the Blue Note label until 1981.
The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 2½ stars and stated "For the last time, Byrd was heard in prime form in an acoustic format... although none of the originals caught on as standards (or have been performed since), together as a whole they give one a lot of variety in the then-modern hard bop field. Pity that this album has been out of print since the mid-'80s".
