Myron Walden Momentum
A celebrated saxophonist at a standout venue
Should you be looking to see jazz this fall, you’d be hard-pressed to find better than Myron Walden. With his root-based rhythms and heart-on-his-sleeve passion, the tenor saxophonist can shift seamlessly from swinging numbers to poignant ballads. Modeled after Miles Davis’ ‘60s quintet, his group, Momentum, abides by their moniker with rousing ditties, showcasing the best jazz has to offer. It’s a marvelous thing. Pro tip: we suggest soaking up the killer vistas of Central Park while chowin’ down on Southern fare from Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola. Best available seating allocated by the venue on arrival. Please note that there is a $10 food and beverage minimum not included in your ticket price.
"Walden plays with a Phoenix-like virtuosity and an attention to rhythmic detail rarely heard among saxophone players."
