Live Jazz: The Chris Walden Big Band and Tierney Sutton at Vitello’s

By: Don Heckman

It was big band Wednesday at Vitello’s.  Like several other clubs around town – notably Steamer’s in Fullerton, Catalina Bar & Grill in Hollywood, Typhoon in Santa Monica and Vibrato in Bel Air – Vitello’s has worked to keep alive the tradition of large ensemble jazz.

On this night, the musical centerpiece was the Grammy-nominated Chris Walden Big Band.  Assembled from an impressive list of Southland A-list players, the Band’s line-up was a perfect choice to perform Walden’s well-crafted arrangements and compositions.
