Cedar Anthony Walton, Jr., 17th January 1934, Dallas, Texas, U.S.A.
Cedar Walton was born in Dallas, Texas and was first taught piano by his mother.
He attended university in Denver before moving to New York.
In 1955 he was drafted into the Army.
Stationed in Germany, Cedar played with American musicians Leo Wright, Don Ellis, and Eddie Harris.
After his discharge, Walton moved back to New York, where he resumed his career.
Here, in 1965, he joined Art Blakey’s group The Jazz Messengers with whom he played through to the mid-70’s.
Touring as a solo artist from 1975, he has played Ronnie Scott’s jazz club in London every year since 1975.
Recording for CBS, his albums include ‘Animation’ (1978) and ‘Soundscapes’ (1980), the latter including ‘Latin America’, a latin fusion favourite on the UK jazz funk scene.
‘Latin America’ appearred on a compilation entitled ‘Fusion Phew’, released on the Elevate label in the U.K. (distributed by Expansion Records).
Cedar Walton was the first pianist to record, in April 1959, with John Coltrane, the tenorist’s recording of ‘Giant Steps’.
