It was in New York, surrounded by visionaries of jazz, where he began to organically develop his liberated, vibrant style that turned him from straight-ahead to progressive jazz singing. Walter’s recordings include, "Dressed in a Song", “Sirens in the C-House,” “Clear Day,” “Dedicated to You,” “2Bass, a Face and a Little Skin,” “Live in Portugal,” “Live at the 55 Bar,” “One Step Away,” and Guest appearances on over 100 recordings. The latest album, released on February 7, 2020, testifies to his personal progression as an evolving artisan and provides an intimate, inventive collection of standards and originals. “Dressed in a Song,” produced by Walter and Grammy-winning producer and A&R executive Al Pryor, features piano and vocal duets and trios with veterans and up-and-comers alike, including Jim Ridl, Orrin Evans, Jean-Michel Pilc, Marc Cary, Taylor Eigsti, Julius Rodriguez, Ben Wolfe, Obed Calvaire, and Becca Stevens.
An extraordinary element of the recordings of Nikitin and Šrámek is the preservation of creative and interpretative freedom. Altar is no exception. The nine compositions draw listeners into a unique music world, created from the fragile miniatures of each composition. “The first composition ‘Lullaby of Kirkland’ written by Šrámek flows very easily. Those who know Šramek’s composition and arrangement style know that it is an exceptionally sophisticated concept in every aspect – rhythm, harmony and also melody. It is interesting that despite complicated processes there is no musicality lost, nor continuity. Nikitin’s saxophone tenor plays very gently and fits well into the mood of the composition. Šrámek’s accompaniment is immensely varied. Solos are beautifully created by both artists.” (Dávid Oláh)
