Earnest Walker Jr. is back with another high-octane gem from his latest album IFATOBA, “Dimensions”. True to its title, the track fuses a simmering, hypnotic soul vibe with wild African flavored percussion fills, showcasing the saxophonist’s expansive musical-cultural palette all in one track. Dig even deeper into the album and you’ll hear how he showcases the depth of his heartfelt and emotional playing on a soulful, balmy arrangement of John Legend’s hit “Ordinary People” which takes the original piano/vocal arrangement to powerful new heights. On the silkier side, IFATOBA wraps with the sultry and smooth sounding “Sweet Dreams,” a tune grounded in old school sensibilities and featuring one of Walker’s most intense, passionate sax melodies.
