Detroit tenor saxophonist Donald Walden's second CD is truly a winning program, a collection of three Thelonious Monk and three Charles Mingus standards, two of Walden's originals, and one of Geri Allen's most potent compositions. Bassist Rodney Whitaker contributes a hundredfold, drummer Karriem Riggins stokes the fires energetically, and pianist Gary Schunk is completely masterful throughout. Pianist William Evans and bassist Marion Hayden guest on three tracks, pianist Kenn Cox, trumpeter Marcus Belgrave, and drummer Gerald Cleaver cameo on one.

Cover information about the songs on the release A Monk and a Mingus Among Us by Donald Walden: who covered the songs, who sang the originals.

Recently a jazz professor at Oberlin College, Walden is indeed deserving of your attention. His tenor sound is seasoned and ripe, rich with pathos, as capable of dancing with the demons as it is of delivering a ballad Ben Webster style. Additionally there are two Walden originals (one a tribute to another influence: Dizzy, With Love) and Geri Allen’s MOPE. Oh yeah, the Monk and Mingus pieces aren’t the usual suspects: he delivers with conviction and assured cunning on such lines as Bye-Ya, Introspection, Peggy’s Blue Skylight, and the ironically sunny and swinging Cell Block F.

when Dexter Gordon glanced back, he saw Donald Walden taking Giant Steps in clear, blue space. So, he held the gate, makin’ the jazz greats wait- Monk, Byrd, Coltrane, the contentious Miles, and the sultry Billie- made them hold a wake for the saxman from Detroit by way of St. Louie, transcending like bebop breaking fixed notes, traversing linear scales, and all repressive constrictions printed on music sheets, like the inconvenience of mortal skin when music enchants our spirits. and the politics of Earth bound dominions diminish
