An ever-evolving presence in the arts scene, composer/pianist Jeremy Walker celebrates his most ambitious composition to date with the CD Release Concert of 7 Psalms. A work for jazz ensemble and choir, the suite also features a singer who is beginning to catch the ear of the jazz music world (described as a cross between Johnny Cash and Harry Connick, Jr.) Jason Harms. 7 Psalms will be booked as a community music-making project, connecting the instrumentalists and soloist with choirs nationwide.
“Jeremy Walker may become the Duke Ellington of the early 21st century.” —Jazz Ink
“7 Psalms is searching, soulful and swinging. This is a beautiful and important recording.” — Ted Nash, Multi-instrumentalist/Composer, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra
“Jeremy Walker’s voice as a pianist and composer is a marvelous thing—his music is both direct and thoughtful, stripped bare of excessive ornamentation, with something elemental and pure in it. 7 Psalms is a very soulful recording, one that will reward repeated listenings.” —David Berkman Pianist/Composer, Professor, Aaron Copland School of Music, C.U.N.Y.
