Professional saxophonist, multi-instrumentalist, educator, arranger, mentor and music producer Walter Chancellor has been a mainstay in the Twin Cities Contemporary Jazz and R&B music scene for the past 25 years. After constant touring during his formative years he decided to relocate to musically successful Minneapolis from Des Moines, Iowa and lessen the necessity of so much traveling to perform. Not long after his arrival in Minneapolis, Walter performed and recorded with Prince, earning him a Double Platinum Record for his participation on Prince’s Emancipation CD in 1996.
Additionally, Walter has performed, recorded and has shared the stage with such artists as Chaka Khan, Maceo Parker, Candy Dulfer, Chance Howard (Candy Dulfer Band, Prince), Musiq Soulchild, Larry Graham, the late Louis Johnson, Cameo, The Pointer Sisters, Bobby Lyle, The Platters and many more.
Chancellor’s new single “Beautiful Day” is mixed, mastered and co-produced by Chris ‘Big Dog’ Davis.
