What was the source?
A young jazz pianist named Todd Cochran, who sometimes performed under one of several different aliases. Bayeté was the name he used for the two albums (Worlds Around the Sun and Seeking Other Beauty) he put out with Prestige records in 1972. One of the songs on the first album also featured the name in its title: “Bayeté (Between Man and God).”
The word Bayete, roughly meaning “hail” in Zulu, is a traditional Zulu royal salute.
