Myron Walden: Higher Ground

Higher Ground was released in 2002 when Myron Walden was 20-some old – the record confirms all the buzz that was going on about him. He had been playing with Wynton Marsalis, Nat Adderley and Lou Donaldson, featuring in ensembles led by Jason Lindner, Brian Blade and co-founded the New York Jazz Composers Octet. Walden plays alto saxophone against tenor saxophonist Marcus Strickland – both remind in some ways of Eric Dolphy playing with John Coltrane.

Track Listing: Solid; Page One; Slow and Steady; You Dig; Higher Ground; When Time Stood Still; High Above the Clouds. MYRON WALDEN, composer on all selections.

Personnel: Myron Walden- Alto saxophone. Marcus Strickland- Tenor saxophone. Brandon Owens- Bass. E.J. Strickland- Drums.
