The companion piece to saxphononist Myron Walden’s In This World: What We Share, To Feel  is another chapter in the prolific, productive career of this talented musician. Walden says in a note in the package that his his hope for the project is that it “will inspire you to reflect on the beauty that exists in the world”.  It certainly is music for reflecting, with a very gentle, warm and embracing quality. Walden composed all the tracks on the project. Guitarist Mike Moreno providesa nice electric accompaniment to Walden’s tenor throughout the set. Also on the recording are Jon Cowherd and David Bryant on Fender Rhodes organ, Chris Thomas and Yasushi Nakamura on acoustic basses and Kendrick Scott handling drums on most the tracks, with Brian Blade of the Fellowship fame, playing on two of the recording’s eleven tracks. This is deeply beautiful work of art that must be heard and appreciated, along with the other part of the musical diptych.
