CEDAR WALTON (b. 1934). Generally regarded as one of the greatest jazz pianists and composers today, Cedar began his career in the late '50s, playing with Gigi Gryce, Kenny Dorham and Lou Donaldson. Prior to his career as a leader, Cedar had been a member of many notable groups, including J.J. Johnson ('58-60), the Golson-Farmer Jazztet ('60-61) and Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers ('61-64), where he served as music director in a group that included Wayne Shorter and Freddie Hubbard. During '65-66 he was Abbey Lincoln's accompanist and was later the "house pianist" for Prestige Records in the late '60s. Since 1975 he has co-lead "Eastern Rebellion," which consists of his trio and a tenor saxophonist, including George Coleman, Bob Berg and Ralph Moore. His many trio dates in the '80s and '90s with David Williams and Billy Higgins rank with the best of the genre. Cedar continues to tour and record regularly.
