Such was the case&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">of NEA Jazz Master Cedar Walton, who was born and grew up in Dallas, and used&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">his mother's guidance as a stepping stone to play with Kenny </span>Dorham<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, </span>JJ<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Johnson,&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Art </span>Blakey<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, Dizzy Gillespie, John </span>Coltrane<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and many others before leading his own&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">group. Tune in for a 2012 recital given by Mr. Walton at the Savannah Music&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Festival.</span></div><p> Fri, 16 Aug 2013 01:00:00 +0000 31476 at http://redriverradio.org Savannah Music Festival: Cedar Walton live
