GLENN WALTERS


He takes possession of everything from Otis Redding's "Pain in My Heart" and "Randy Newman's gorgeous paean to "Marie," to a funky "Grits Ain't Groceries" and a jazzy "Round Midnight."

Glenn Walters Solo CDA guy who has a voice as warm, furry and comforting as a mink coat. You just wanna wrap it around you. Check out his new CD called, amazingly enough, "Glenn Walters," especially "Stand By Me" and "Round Midnight."
— Cynthia Robins, S.F. Examiner Arts & Entertainment, 9-20-97

His craggy, gravelly voice navigates the well-worn terrain of songs like "Stand By Me," "Pain in My Heart" and "Round Midnight" with the certainty and finesse of a cagey veteran, which Walters clearly is.

SONGS

Notes from Glenn Walters: Linda Tillery: Linda first came to my notice in the late 60's as lead singer and drummer for The Loading Zone. I finally got to meet her in the late 80's when we worked together in The Zasu Pitts Memorial Orchestra. She then went on to sing with Bobby McFerrin's Voicestra and is now involved in her own vocal group. She's one of my all-time favorite singers and just a terrific person." Mark Russo: Recently with The Yellow Jackets, Tower of Power, Huey Lewis and now with the re-formed Doobie Brothers, Mark is probably the best all-around alto sax player I know of. His solo on "Stand By Me" makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck." Doc Kupka: Doc's incredibly powerful baritone sax sound has been the one of the foundations of The Tower of Power since its beginnings. He's also a prolific songwriter and has featuredmy vocal work on two songs from his solo CD, "Kick It Up a Step," by his Strokeland Superband . Dave Mathews: Dave toured the world with Etta James for several years and has recently been working with Boz Scaggs. His help in arranging (especially the string parts) and his masterful keyboard playing were essential to this recording. He is also a Tower of Power alumnus. Interested inquiries to Glenn Walters
