"If any group can turn the concept of ebb and flow into a fully realized art form, it's Walking Distance."-AllAboutJazz, Dan Bilawsky

Walking Distance is the New York collective of Caleb Curtis (alto saxophone), Kenny Pexton (tenor saxophone), Adam Coté (double bass) and Shawn Baltazor (drums).

Neighborhood is the band’s debut release; a visceral and sincere celebration of finding home and a sense of belonging wherever you are. The band revels in a wide range of possibilities; from melodic swing and grooving rock, to free bop and soulful ballads, with a dash of terror-inducing chaos.

Neighborhood was self produced by the band, recorded by Shawn Baltazor, and mixed by the incomparable Ben Rubin at the House of Cha Cha in New York. The album features entirely original compositions with the exception of one American Songbook standard – a radically re-imagined “I Could Have Danced All Night” from My Fair Lady.
