About Myron Walden

Myron Walden was born in Miami, Florida on October 18, 1972, moving with his mother to the Bronx at age 12, and grew up listening to a wide range of rhythm and blues, blues, soul, and gospel music. Shortly after the move, as Myron's uncle was listening to a recording of Charlie Parker's 'One Night in Washington,' young Myron was profoundly moved by the music and, hearing the uncle exclaim Tell it Bird!, he immediately knew that music was his calling and that music would be his voice.

In some ways, his 2009-2010 trio of albums best reflects the way music made him feel at that early age. When Brian Blade Fellowship was formed I was really inspired. Here was a jazz master who knew country, blues and early rock. Brian helped me realize the vast possibilities in music. My passion is too expansive to be limited to one style. I like to express myself and my emotions beyond the conventions of any one genre. With new recordings, 'Momentum', 'In This World' and 'Countryfied', Walden has created a body of work full of range and passion.

As a boy, the local public school had no music department, but a sympathetic teacher, touched by the child's desire to play the saxophone, encouraged Myron to take home an old alto saxophone from the school storage closet. By studying Charlie Parker's album art and listening to his uncle's record, Myron taught himself to play the saxophone.
