ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pianist/composer Nancy Walker has been recognized with honours Canada-wide, including the Montréal Jazz Festival’s Grand Prix de Jazz, the National Jazz Awards Keyboardist Of The Year Award, a JUNO nomination for Instrumental Album Of The Year, and an induction into the Mississauga Music Walk Of Fame. Nancy has several discs to her credit as leader. Til Now Is Secret showcases ten of her compositions inspired by landscapes, visual art, architecture and more. "Nancy Walker has played enough piano to know how to keep listeners interested however hard she pushes the boundaries of familiarity." - WholeNote Magazine
“It’s no secret that Toronto pianist Nancy Walker is one of Canadian jazz’s most notable, questing composers. With her latest of seven CDs, Walker takes her deepest dive yet into musical waters, offering 10 original compositions that spur heady, rich playing.” Peter Hum, Ottawa Citizen

“Walker’s new release, ‘Til Now Is Secret [Addo Records] offers 10 distinctive tracks that offer a soundscape to our sense of mystery. It’s an album rich in colour and texture, and firmly grounded in the language of jazz, which in itself can be a bit unruly. But Walker’s music vocabulary is strong and varied enough to provide an emotional experience that never wallows. It’s music that celebrates itself while including the audience in that celebration. In other words it’s accessible without any commercial compromises.” John Corcelli, Critics At Large
“Nancy Walker extends an invitation to the listener to enter her very unique world of pianistic journeys. Hers is a joyous leaping loping stomping approach to the keyboard that harkens to the era of a strong left hand. There are many influences swirling in her music; there is also this strong sense of self, a definite presence of Nancy Walker as a musical entity.” Len Bukowski, CODA Magazine

“Harmonically she’s influenced by the usual suspects-Evans, Hancock, Jarrett, etc.-but her delicate touch and denser harmonic constructs brings to mind British pianist John Taylor as well…Walker’s music is easy on the ears, but don’t mistake that for lacking in interest or challenge, because she masks an advanced harmonic concept within an accessible veneer.” John Kelman, Allaboutjazz

“A gifted pianist and composer, Nancy Walker is possessed of a lyricism that can suggest lapping water and bright skies, and a contrasting rhythmic drive. A former student of Fred Hersch, she builds on a tradition of romantic jazz piano that has deep roots in the harmonic innovations of Bill Evans.” Stuart Broomer, Toronto Life Magazine

“ **** Toronto pianist Nancy Walker, winner of last year’s Grand Prix de Jazz General Motors at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, has produced a first-rate recording of original music that should help propel her performing career. Walker has a percussive style, which gives her music drive and intensity. Her vision is replete with fresh ideas and a positive outlook.” Irwin Block, Montreal Gazette
