Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Cedar Walton (piano); Vincent Herring (alto saxophone, tenor saxophone); Jeremy Pelt (trumpet, flugelhorn); Al Foster (drums); Peter Washington.
  • Audio Mixer: Rudy Van Gelder.
  • Liner Note Author: Kirk Silsbee.
  • Recording information: Van Gelder Recording Studio, Elnglewood Cliffs, NJ (02/01/2008).
  • Post-bop mainstay Cedar Walton has tickled the ivories with everyone from Art Blakey to Clifford Jordan, but his solo discography is not to be overlooked. SEASONED WOOD, cut when Walton was nearing his mid-70s, is as vital and refined as anything he's done in his career. Backed by an exceptional quintet, including drummer Al Foster and longtime cohort saxophonist Vincent Herring, Walton swings fiercely on standards ("The Man I Love," "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square") and on his own excellent originals. Sophisticated and elegant, Walton updates his classic post-bop sound, not by forcing it into something it's not, but by bringing it to life with the wisdom and panache of a veteran.
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (p.67) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The gentle waltz 'Clockwise' posits the notions of clarity and lyrical genius. Bassist Peter Washington sails through a melodious solo and shares the unusually beautiful Herbie Nichols-ish head of 'Hindsight.'"

JazzTimes (p.105) - "[W]hat is special about this band is the piano player: his aggressive yet nuanced touch, his slightly eccentric harmonic sensibility, his grainy lushness."
