Saxophonist Myron Walden’s latest, Countryfied, captures the bluesy-soul of the great Memphis/Muscle Shoals recordings. Electric guitars and organ are integral to the sound here with Steven Elliot and Kenneth Salters handling the six strings on different tracks and Jared Gold on the keys. Walden blows like a torch on high energy tunes and finds the necessary subtleties of a ballads, the mix of which comprise the album’s eleven tracks, all composed by Walden, on a project that further demonstrates the brilliance of this incredibly versatile musician.
