MP3 Donald Walden - A Portrait of You
Original hard hitting straight-ahead jazz sax in the Rollins / Coltrane / Rouse school.
6 MP3 Songs
JAZZ: Bebop, JAZZ: Traditional Jazz Combo
A Portrait of You contains 5 Walden originals and 1 Thelonious Monk composition. The originals range in context from the socio/political tome Soweto/Detroit, whose unspoken lyrics addressess the social issues that face both societies, to the lyrical romanticism of the title song "A Portrait of You".
All Music Guide describes: "Walden''s saxophone sound is informed by the Rollins-Coltrane-Rouse school, but does not cop their sonorities. His technique is lighter, lyrical, full-toned but not brash or obvious."
Saxophone critic John Laughter says ; "Donald Walden is a musician who has developed a unique, personal sound. One of the most satisfying aspects I find in the recordings of John Coltrane is an undefinable spirituality that seems to emanate from his saxophone. Donald Walden plays with a similar intensity. That is not to say that Walden and Coltrane sound alike because they don''t. Both saxophonists play with a similar sense of urgency that makes me listen more carefully to their playing than I do to the playing of some other musicians".
Originality is one of the greatest qualities an artist can
have, particularly in technological era in which we live.
In Walden you will hear originallity in style as well as in composition. Not content to just write music you will find Walden as a gifted lyricist as well.
