“On FOR ALL WE KNOW, David expresses his love for Cedar Walton, who passed away last year and whose loss was a significant blow to the jazz community.”
— John Sunier, Audiophile Audition, May 5, 2014

David Hazeltine is a pianist known for his harmonic sophistication and elegant style–two traits he shares with the late, great Cedar Walton, one of his primary mentors and influences. When Hazeltine initially set out to make what would become his Smoke Sessions debut, FOR ALL WE KNOW, making a tribute record was the furthest thing from his mind, and FOR ALL WE KNOW is definitely not a tribute record, it’s hard to ignore the importance of Cedar Walton’s legacy to it. Hazeltine is one of the important heirs to Walton’s piano tradition, so it is only natural so soon after the maestro’s passing that his gratitude and affection would be dominant themes on this recording. Hazeltine tapped tenor saxophonist Seamus Blake for what is essentially their first collaboration, as well as two important veterans of Walton’s trio/quartet, bassist David “Happy” Williams and drummer Joe Farnsworth.
