Walking Distance

Exploration and improvisation are the eternal hallmarks of jazz, with each new performer adding his individual stamp to the library of the genre.

This is exactly the dynamic of Walking Distance, the New York collective of Caleb Curtis (alto saxophone), Kenny Pexton (tenor saxophone), Adam Coté (double bass) and Shawn Baltazor (drums). Neighborhood is the band’s debut release; a visceral and sincere celebration of finding home and a sense of belonging wherever you are. Two saxophonists intertwine in sound and concept, often blending seamlessly and engaging in a spirited interplay with the drums and bass

NYT Approved

Read "NYT Approved" reviewed by Patrick Burnette

Vegetation may die in December but best-of lists sprout like weeds. This episode, the boys examine four selections on the venerable New York Times' best-of list of 2018 jazz releases, and (by their cranky standards, at least) like what they find. Except for a certain passage of spoken-word optimism. Bastards can't abide optimism. The music ranges ...

Martin Schulte Quartet featuring Frederik Köster: Walking Distance

Read "Walking Distance" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

German jazz guitarist Martin Schulte opens this excellent quartet outing with the title tune. The title must be a play on the prominent walking bass line provided by bassist Matthias Nowak, but it's also a catchy, swinging piece with dramatic, unexpected stops (as well as a showcase for guest trumpeter Frederik Köster). Tenor saxophonist Peter Ehwald ...

Walking Distance: Neighborhood

Read "Neighborhood" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

If any group can turn the concept of ebb and flow into a fully realized art form, it's Walking Distance. This New York-based foursome thrives on architectural schemes connected to the expansion and contraction of musical materials, presenting sounds that can appear disjointed, yet demonstrating congruence in their expression(s) all the while. Different players push and ...

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
