Texas' pianist Cedar Walton
who moved to New York in 1955 and played with
Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers (1961-64),
was emblematic of the musicians of the 1960s who continued to express themselves in the hard-bop vernacular ignoring most of the innovations of free jazz and fusion jazz.
Walton was capable of charming compositions and playing in an unassuming melodic style, as proven on his debut album, Cedar (july 1967).
