Last Friday, January 17 was Cedar Walton’s 80th birthday. He did not have the possibility to celebrate that as he passed away August 19 last summer. You can read more about his life here.
Cedar Walton Quartet played on Saturday July 16, 1976 in Pori Jazz Festival. The members of the quartet were
- Cedar Walton (Jan 17, 1934 – Aug 19, 2013), piano
- George Coleman (b. Mar 8, 1935), saxophone
- Sam Jones (Nov 12, 1924 – Dec 15, 1981), bass
- Billy Higgins (Oct 11, 1936 – May 3, 2001), drums
I can not remember the set they played, but I have a good guess. This Quartet made one LP recording in December 1975: Eastern Rebellion. You can listen the whole album in Spotify. (Afaik, this is the only record made by these very same members.)
