Jazz at Vassar
Last Friday, Cedar Walton Quartet‘s two-hour concert felt like ten minutes long. Pianist Walton mesmerized me with his effortless but electrifying style. I was watching his fingers moving up and down the keyboard the whole time. His bassist David Williams was also blazing, especially the way he smacked the bass up during his improvisations. The young saxophonist Vincent Herring was arresting. The musicians gave Vassar a fantastic time. For me, it was definitely too short.
