    Jazz pianist Cedar Walton, one of the leading figures in the post-bop era, has died in Brooklyn at the age of 79.

    Walton, originally from Texas, moved to New York in his early 20s. After a brief military service he continued his career in the Big Apple, playing as a sideman with the likes of J.J. Johnson, Benny Golson and Kenny Dorham.

    In the early 1960s he joined the Jazz Messengers, and was Art Blakey's pianist and arranger alongside trumpet player Freddie Hubbard and saxophonist Wayne Shorter.
