It was such an honor to catch Cedar Walton and his trio at Dizzy’s Coca-Cola Club a few years back in New York City. I was a young kid just learning where Jazz may take me and Cedar Walton made it very clear. Not at all with his words, but with the sound he created and the energy he brought.
I honestly felt so lucky to be involved in such history. I don’t know where the wind would have taken me if I didn’t go to that show.
The world is missing yet another amazing musician.
