For most of his career Walden has primarily been known as an alto player. Recently his focus has shifted to the tenor and he's documenting this with a handful of new releases from several different bands.
In This World is comprised of Walden on tenor/soprano sax & bass clarinet; Mike Moreno on electric & acoustic guitars; Jon Cowherd on fender rhodes; Yasushi Nakamura or Chris Thomas on acoustic bass; and Kendrick Scott or Brian Blade on drums.
The music is lush and melodic. It's gentle and restrained yet contains an undercurrent of urgency that keeps it moving forward.
Take a listen for yourself.
