"Easy-grooving saxophonist R.L. Walker - his passion plays out via sensual, infectious ballads of varying tempos and old school, soul-jazz leanings"
- Sandy Shore
Smooth Jazz Saxophonist
R.L. Walker has been composing, producing and performing on the saxophone for the better part of the last decade. To his credit, he has compiled an impressive collection of 6 studio CDs over that time and he shows no signs of stopping. His latest CD project "Coming BIG" (Blessed, Inspired, Genuine), says it all about his intentions and the dynamic vibes he shares. Drawing from his personal spiritual path and background in gospel music, he’s truly feeling blessed, inspired and genuinely showcasing his skillset! Like other gospel/jazz saxophonists such as Kirk Whalum, Walker has a few direct references to his faith, but mostly, his passion plays out via sensual, infectious ballads of varying tempos and old school, soul-jazz leanings. Guests include bassist Brendan Rothwell, vocalist Demetriace “Chee Chee” Jordan and keyboardist/producer/arranger Lew Laing Jr.
