JAZZ: Smooth Jazz, JAZZ: Jazz Fusion
Born in a military family, Earnest spent the first 15 years of his life traveling the country. The experience taught him an appreciation of different cultures and musical styles. While still a very young child Earnest's Air Force family was stationed in Hawaii. There he befriended his neighbors, the Wooten family, whose house was continuously filled with the sounds of live music. While Victor Wooten went on to become the best bass player in the world, it was Rudy on the saxophone that really inspired Earnest. At the tender age of 9 Earnest started playing the guitar, but a year later he picked up the saxophone and it has been his principle instrument ever since. Amazing his instructors, Earnest was deemed a natural. When Earnest was only 15 years old the established musicians in Pensacola, Florida felt his playing was so essential that they sneaked Earnest into night clubs to showcase his talents. Most nights Earnest was not allowed to leave the bandstand because he looked even younger then his 15 years!
Earnest studied music education at Bethune-Cookman College quickly establishing himself as the best saxman on campus and around town. After college Earnest joined the Air Force where he performed with different groups in each town he was stationed. After the military Earnest toured and performed in most of the central to eastern portions of the country, including Miami, Daytona Beach, Charleston SC, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Atlanta, Tampa, Orlando, and Denver.
In the late 90's Earnest moved to Philadelphia and became a member of the prestigious smooth jazz band "Blind Date". Earnest will release his new CD with members of Blind Date in January 2006.
Earnest produced and financed his first album "Raindrops In The Sun" in 1999 to gain the attention of jazz record labels. Selling his CD's at performances he has managed to sell over 2000 copies.
Because he has performed on stage and as a session player for 25 years, his recorded sound is incredible, but you have not heard Earnest Walker, Jr. until you have seen his live performance.
Earnest Walker, Jr. is a 'performing mans' saxophonist. His is a physical style of hip gyrations; saxophone pumping and swinging that gets every crowd into an uproar. Rarely has there been a saxman that combines a great sounding horn with such a brilliant show. A must see.
