Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. A wonderful trio set from pianist Cedar Walton – recorded around the same time as his excellent sessions for the Red label in Italy, and with a similar mix of groove and lyricism! The trio here features Walton's frequent and well-matched partners – the mighty Billy Higgins on drums and David Williams on bass – both players whose sense of melodic swing works perfectly with Cedar's piano, and also maybe even encourages him to have a bit more bite here than usual, especially on his attack, which creates a lot of subtle fire on the record! Titles include "Voices Deep Within", "Third Street Blues", "Magical Lady", "Short Comings", and "Bleeker Street Theme".

Cedar Walton is a great jazz master whose bop-based style has influenced younger pianists over many decades. Also known for his great composing, this time Walton chose to do, for Venus Records, a songbook by legendary film composer Victor Young. Aided superby by super-bassist Buster Williams and – a sharp drummer of a younger generation, Walton plays Young's beautiful songs with relaxed elegance and modern jazz flair.

Jazz / Hard Bop / Piano

A wonderful album from the great Cedar Walton trio that featured Sam Jones on bass and Billy Higgins on drums – a really beautiful group of musicians who completely transformed the sound of the piano trio in the 70s! The group played together often in the 70s, and they've never sounded better than on an album like this – freely soulful and dancing, with Walton in firm command of his talents – sometimes coming on with the strength of his early 60s material, but always opening up with a more exploratory vibe too. Walton worked often in this mode for the decades that followed this set – but this Japanese album is almost the start of that great legacy, and still one of the best from this group! Titles include "Con Alma", "Suite Sunday", "Suntory Blues", and "Fantasy In D".

New York Time offers jazz fans a wonderful opportunity to hear two rising stars of the genre (McBride, Jackson) performing with two respected elders (Cobb, Walton). The past also meets the present in other exciting ways on this recording. The set is highlighted by several of Walton’s original compositions and a cover of the legendary John Coltrane's "Naima". Meanwhile, McBride's acoustic bass talents are spotlighted on his self-written composition "Grove" (for trumpeter Roy Hargrove) and Jackson represents the new vanguard of jazz with his own tune titled "Notes in Three".

Jazz / Post Bop / Modal Music / Bass / PIano Trio

Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. A familiar grouping, but one that's presented here in a very different way – as bassist David Williams is up front in the lead, instead of working in his more familiar role in the trio of pianist Cedar Walton! Yet Walton's on board for this debut set from Williams as a leader – as is drummer Billy Higgins – and it's wonderful to hear the way they change things up slightly to give David more time in the spotlight, and to hear the way that Williams hits some of his more lyrical, melodic modes too – qualities that further our love of his talents on the bass, which were already great enough when working behind Walton. Cedar gets in plenty of solos along the way, but often cedes more time to Williams.

Jazz, Hard Bop | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 57 min | 132 MB
Label: High Note | Rel: 2001

Top-notch hard bop is performed by pianist Cedar Walton's quartet, a group also including altoist Vincent Herring (who doubles on flute), bassist David Williams, and drummer Kenny Washington. An underrated composer, Walton performs five of his own pieces, plus four standards (including "Body and Soul" and "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes"). Herring's Cannonball Adderley-inspired alto is well featured, and Kenny Washington fits right into Billy Higgins' old slot. Easily recommended for fans of modern straight-ahead jazz.

Jazz / Post Bop / Hard Bop / Piano / Bass

Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. A spare session, but never a sleepy one – given the inherent complexity in the music of both bassist Ron Carter and pianist Cedar Walton – and the way they can swing even in the most mellow moments! There's only a few of those on the record, though – as most of the tunes have an upbeat groove, even without any drums – with those masterfully carved lines from Carter's acoustic bass that were developed fully on his 70s years as a leader – alongside the ever-growing palette of sound that Walton's always able to pull from the familiar keys of an acoustic piano! The album's a masterpiece in subtle swing and spacing – and titles include "Little Waltz", "Heart & Soul", "Back To Bologna", "Beautiful Friendship", "Telephone", and "Django".
