Saxophonist Walter Chancellor, Jr.’s new single Steppin' Out (EARFONE RECORDS) is a lively tune perfect for the warmer weather. Chancellor, who hails from the Twin Cities, played with fellow Minneapolis musician The Artist Formerly Known As Prince during the double platinum Emancipation album.  Walter has played with an A list of artists from Chaka Khan, to Candy Dulfer to Maceo Parker. Steppin' Out is not just a song title it could very well be a statement. You can hear this brand new song exclusively on Jazz 91.9 WCLK.
