Mike Walker has finally stepped into the national limelight after many years honing his craft in the North West. Amongst the many fine musicians that Mike has played and recorded with over the last 20 years, mention must be made of Dave Holland, John Taylor, Tal Farlow, Arild Anderson, George Russell and Bill Frisell. This is exciting, modern, original and brave music, composed and arranged with great class. The sextet jump from jazz to rock, fusion to blues without being caught drunk at the wheel. Walker's solos are amazing, sweet and spicy or bad and distorted when needed, with ferocious lyricism. Contemporary jazz fusion at its best.
