A hard swinging, soulful debut by Vancouver saxophonist Jerry Cook. Walk In The Park sizzles from the opening downbeat.
A Walk In The Park is an absolute delight to listen to from start to finish. The complexity is in the simplicity. The music reflects how Jerry is as a person: swinging and soulful. The all-star Vancouver rhythm section of pianist Chris Gestrin, bassist John Lee and drummer Jesse Cahill provide the perfect foil for Jerry's bluesy flourishes a la Arnett Cobb, Stanley Turrentine and Willis Jackson.
