Fiona's Comments

Sophisticated big band sound, eloquent arrangement with euphoric sax sections and distinctive trumpet solo. Pleasing homage to a member of jazz nobility.

About the Album

Pianist Ben Markley, along with special guest trumpeter Terell Stafford, celebrates one of the more influential and beloved figures in jazz through this unique project, showcasing many of the late pianist and composer Cedar Walton’s most revered tunes through new arrangements for big band. Performing iconic compositions such as "Hindsight," "Bolivia," and "Holy Land," Markley brings together fellow faculty members from the University of Wyoming and top-flight Denver-area musicians to produce an honest and swinging recording that honors Cedar Walton while presenting his music in a bright new light. “...to hear a big band's interpretation of Cedar's music has to be the most beautiful thing I have ever heard in my life!...I know Cedar is beaming at the results!!” - Martha Walton.
