Album Notes
John Walter is a composer and jazz pianist living in Devon UK. In the eighties he was working regularly on the Bristol Jazz scene alongside the likes of Gerry Underwood and Andy Sheppard . Since then John has focussed more on teaching and in 2000 set up DrumCrazy, a company running drumcircles in schools and the corporate sector.
The CD “Lost in time” is a totally solo recording of his own compositions collected over a period of 25 years. The newer tunes tend to have echoes of world music styles, but all are grounded in the Jazz tradition.
The whole CD was recorded over two days in Studios in Cornwall. All are straight takes with no overdubbing or cutting. The majority were recorded on a beautiful Fazioli piano that used to grace Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club.

Accomplished jazz pianist front & center on fine debut
Jazz pianist John Walter’s debut CD, “Lost in Time,” was a long time in the making, but more than worth the wait. An accomplished player of skill & sensitivity, the London-schooled, Devon-based Walter has been performing & teaching in England since the 80s, building up a resume that has included stints with acclaimed UK soloists like Andy Sheppard & Paul Dunmall. Displaying an affinity for the kind of lyricism & lush chords of a Keith Jarrett or Bill Evans, “Lost in Time” is a 12-song collection of original, piano-only jazz compositions filled with quiet intensity. “There Will Be Peace” & “Song to An Empty Room,” with their solemn & moving melodies, are highlights of Walter’s expansiveness, each clocking in at over 6 minutes, as the composer explores every nuance of his themes. The more up-tempo “Wosa” hints at pop sensibilities before drawing back upon its jazz roots, while title-track, “Lost in Time,” works the upper registers in an other-worldly performance of real beauty. As overdue introductions go, John Walter’s “Lost in Time” CD is a much-appreciated look at an artist stepping out of the shadows as an accompanist to spotlight his own considerable talents as a composer & jazz pianist.


John Walter's Lost in Time
I have enjoyed John's music for a few years now, but I've only previously heard him in a band. This solo album is a real treat. There's a good range of moods: sometimes upbeat, & other times more spacious, but overall it's simply a joy to listen to. I'm reminded of other pianists, such as Abdullah Ibrahim, but this is clearly John Walter, and he's at his best. I look forward to more in the future.
