Cedar Walton
Underground Memoirs

Cedar Walton returns to the studio for HighNote and offers his very first solo piano recording since the historic Maybeck recording of 15 years ago. Cedar has done it all in his career, playing with John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson and others. He has written charts for Roy Hargrove, backed up vocalists, written scores of original compositions and has proven himself to be a consummate all-around musician. It is therefore a special occasion when an artist such as Cedar Walton, who can express himself via any medium he chooses, returns to his pianistic roots and gives free reign to his musical thoughts through the 88 keys of the piano. A selection of great standards, jazz tunes and one original composition make up the program and restores to our memories that Cedar Walton, with the many musical hats he wears, remains one of the finest and most influential of all pianists in jazz today.
