Places and Spaces is an album by American trumpeter Donald Byrd, that was released on Blue Note in 1975.


Allmusic awarded the album with 4 stars and its review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine states: "Boasting sweeping string arrangements, sultry rhythm guitars, rubbery bass, murmuring flügelhorns, and punchy horn charts, the music falls halfway between the cinematic neo-funk of Street Lady and the proto-disco soul of Earth, Wind & Fire."[1]
