Album Review

After Darren Barrett pulls off a considerably dexterous lick on his trumpet during his "The Road Ahead" solo, bandleader Myron Walden let out a guttural "WOA!" He dug it. At the end of Barrett's solo, the crowd gave him loud affirmative applause. They dug it, too. Most of Momentum Live is emboldened and driven by the energy of the musicians on-stage and that of their audience. ("Your appreciation drives us, inspires us," Walden tells the crowd.) It turns some of the songs from Momentum's studio release into longer tunes branded with fire. The musicians for the live date are different than the studio release, most notably John Davis sitting in for Kendrick Scott and Eden Ladin working the piano instead of David Bryant on Rhodes, but the material doesn't suffer at all. In fact, it is livelier and more compelling. Fans of the studio release — especially listeners who like their jazz with an edge — will appreciate Walden's reinterpretations on this live set.

Customer Reviews

great companion to the studio album

a fine live album that serves as a great counterpart to the recent studio recording.

Myron Walden Momentum Live

I love this album! Momentum is a great live band. The music is first rate, but the passion and feeling that feeds on the audience-artist connection is moving. It has all of Walden's signature brand of firey, soulful playing and with Darren Barrett on the front line with him, it's impossible to remain unmoved!

Myron Walden Momentum

Walden's new release is an inspired collection of his compositions, augmented only by the amazing caliber of his fellow musicians. The group's interaction during improvisation is truly outstanding, and Walden's musical persona is a captivating one. Trumpet player Darren Barrett contributes significantly with his energetic musical statement, and the rhythm section propels the music forward in a very cohesive way. This is truly a great album!
