RIP Cedar Walton.

Jazz pianist Cedar Walton died earlier today at his home in Brooklyn. Walton was a superb pianist in the post hard bop style - who made many albums both as leader and sideman. Sonny Criss' album Up Up and Away contains some of Walton's best work in a supportive, but not subdued role.. I was knocked out when I heard him at Ronnie's as part of the 2011 London Jazz Festival. A truly memorable session and I'd hoped to hear him live again - Sadly, that's not going to happen.
Cedar Walton was 79.
Obituary.
Lance.
