About Clockwise

With trumpeters Terell Stafford, Nick Marchione, John Lake, and Dan Jonas; saxophonists Wil Swindler, Scott Turpen, Peter Sommer, and Joel Frahm; trombonists Paul McKee and Gary Mayne; pianist Ben Markley, guitarist Steve Kovalcheck, bassist David Wong, and drummer Jim White.

“But whether the band is delivering a powerful strut with Latin rhythms, as it does on ‘Fiesta Español,’ or offering a more mellow mood, as it does on "Hindsight," the overall vibe here is one of toe-tapping celebration. This is addictive music that will make you want to grab a partner and hit the dance floor.” – DownBeat [Editor’s Pick]

The project showcases many of the late pianist and composer Cedar Walton's revered tunes in a fresh light through new big band arrangements. Inspired renditions of compositions such as “Hindsight,” “Bolivia,” and “Holy Land” honor Cedar Walton while presenting his music in a brand new manner, and Mrs. Martha Walton has said " hear a big band's interpretation of Cedar's music has to be the most beautiful thing I have ever heard in my life… I know Cedar is beaming at the results!" The album has received great critical acclaim, including a four-star review in DownBeat magazine, which also called it one of 2017’s best records. For big band and bop lovers, there’s no better way to spend a Monday night in New York City.
