On Siren, his sixth for Criss Cross, Walt serves up another batch of expertly crafted and beautifully written pieces, this time for a nonet comprised of some seasoned veterans of the New York scene, including Conrad Herwig, Joe Magnarelli, Jim Snidero, Scott Robinson, his brother Joel, and drummer Billy Drummond.
This new material is ripe with lush voicings and teeming with sophisticated counterpoint.
