Cedar Walton
Latin Tinge

Just when you think Cedar Walton has done it all - from his gigs with Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard, and Art Farmer to backing Abbey Lincoln to leading groups including sidemen like Kenny Dorham, Junior Cook, Blue Mitchell, Billy Higgins and Ron Carter - he surprises us all by displaying another facet of his creativity and offers up his first ever Latin album. With the heavy-duty latin rhythm section of Cucho Martinez and Ray Mantilla, Cedar shows a complete command of the Latin idiom -- not only with great Latin standards like, "Perfidia" and "Tres Palabras" but also with a handful of originals that sound as naturally Latin as a day on the Copacabana beach. Highlighting one of the true giants of the keyboard in a unique setting and repertoire, Cedar's latest HighNote recording will garner much press and airplay. PREVIOUS RELEASE: Cedar Walton - The Promise Land - HCD 7081.
