Bolivia is one of my all-time favorite jazz tunes. It was first recorded on Eastern Rebellion. The record features tenor saxophone great George Coleman as well the Sam Jones and Billy Higgins. Cedar went on to record this tune several times on albums such as 3rd Set (Steeplechase - 1977), Roots (Astor Place - 1997, Midnight Waltz (Venus - 2005). His Messenger's band mate Freddie Hubbard also played this tune frequently recording it with Walton on the record Homegrown (Master Music - 1991) with Ralph Moore, Vincent Herring, David Williams, and Billy Higgins.
