http://jazzinsideandout.com/tag/royal-roost/

This is the first volume of an original Nocturne series dedicated to sharing the prodigious art form of bebop. Curated by Colorado-based saxophonist / arranger / composer Wil Swindler, the series name is inspired by the iconic Royal Roost jazz club on New York's storied 52nd Street in the late 1940's where bebop was organically brought to life by musicians such as Dexter Gordon, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Tadd Dameron, Fats Navarro, Miles Davis and Max Roach.

This special June series explores and celebrates the classic and contemporary soul-jazz repertoire of the great organ trios. Important and historic collaborations were forged in the 1960s between organists and guitarists, and several iconic guitarists such as Wes Montgomery, George Benson, and Pat Martino launched their recording careers in this format. This classic sound lived on through the acid jazz of the 1970s to the retro funk of the 90s.

The Ken Walker Sextet is a little like the full moon, except the KWS is more dependable and swings harder. The full moon arcs gracefully across the sky. It's nice, but does it make you snap your fingers? Walker and his band evoke (but don't demand) that response.

Featuring: Ken Walker-bass, Dave Corbus-guitar, Al Hood-trumpet, Paul Romaine-drums, Jeff Jenkins-piano, and Peter Sommer-sax
