MUSIC REVIEW BY Fred Bouchard, Downbeat, December 2006

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Arms-wide embraces and straightforward voicings mark the squeaky-clean but silky-smooth style of trumpeter and film and TV composer Walden. A cast of 60-plus with international guests wail these tight-as-a-cricket charts and take brisk solos. Tierney Sutton sings Peggy Lee straight-arrow on "People Will Say We're In Love" as trombonist Bob McChesney goes wild. The album features Walden's spacious, seamless charts, but offers few surprises: Walden writes with old-school technique but far-reaching vistas. (***1/2 stars)
