With his funky touch and vigorous melodic sense, Cedar Walton makes sparks fly across the keys as one of today’s most influential hard-bop pianists. A brilliant interpreter of the classics, he has also penned many originals that have become permanent fixtures in the jazz repertoire. After his appearance in last year’s A Jazz New Year’s Eve with the Timeless All-Stars, the Washington Post praised him as a master with a "flair for subtle embellishments...who doesn't come to town nearly often enough." Along with his Trio, Cedar Walton gives Kennedy Center audiences an encore with more blistering blues and bop.
