Myron WaldenJuly 2, 2010 / No Comments
Just when you thought jazz saxophonists of the modern day were knockoffs of the Coltrane or Sonny Rollins records they’ve listened to, Myron Walden comes along. The 37-year old Miami native has spent several years as a part of the Brian Blade Fellowship becoming the artist we hear on What We Share, one of a suite of his recordings. What makes Walden such a compelling musician is not just his mastery of the instrument, but beautifully engaging compostions that are contemplative, contemporary and evocative. He composed all of the music on this production. Personnel on the disc inlcude David Bryant on Fender Rhodes, Mike Moreno of guitar and Kendrick Scott, Brian Blade and keyboardist Jon Cowherd join in on one album’s track. With every note, Walden literally breathes new life into the music making him an artist not to miss.
