Cedar Walton’s Prestige years in the late Sixties marked his coming of age as pianist, composer, and bandleader. Unfortunately, the public’s attention to other musical styles kept Walton in the “deserving wider recognition” category for too long. This disc, which combines his Spectrum and Electric Boogaloo Song albums, verifies that he was ready to accept the leadership mantle of jazz’s modern mainstream long before his more recent prominence. As usual with Walton, the support is all-star, the writing is fresh, and the selection of standards is astute, adding up to timeless jazz from a neglected period in an important artist’s career.

with Blue Mitchell, Clifford Jordan, Richard Davis, Bob Cranshaw, Jack DeJohnette, Mickey Roker
