Yesterday, the rebirth of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos aired live on Fox. We will be biased by saying, this is one of the only shows you should watch on television. We never post about shows, TV, or any of that. This show is for real and it needs the support of others for it to further exist.
If you are not familiar with the original series, YouTube or Netflix it, or feel free to start fresh tonight and learn about our existence as beings. It’s healthy, trust us. The show aims to educate the importance of learning what is outside of our solar system, that being, what is our existence and why do we exist?

Cedar Walton was an American Jazz pianist from Dallas, Texas. Walton worked as a very successful composer and band leader for almost 40 years (60s-2000s). He has stated that his biggest influences in the Jazz industry were Nat King Cole, Bud Powell and Thelonius Monk. These influences are very prevalent throughout much of his music.
Walton was one of THE hardest working musicians for years on end. The man dominated the Jazz industry by releasing 30+ records in his lifetime. He has worked alongside many prominent musicians including: Benny Golson, John Coltrane, Richie Powell, and Don Ellis, just to name a few. It wasn’t until January 2010, that he was inducted in the National Endowment for the Jazz Arts Masters. While there’s a lot more to learn and read up on Cedar Walton, we hope this brief knowledge will further open up avenues for exploring classic artists such as Walton (if you already don’t know the man).
Press play, enjoy some tunes, and check back for next week’s Weekend Classics.
