Editorial Reviews

Grammy award winning pianist and keyboard player Jim Beard has accumulated a staggering array of credits including composing for John McLaughlin and Michael Brecker, and performing on world tours with Wayne Shorter, Pat Metheny and Steely Dan. 'Show of Hands', is unique amongst his work, however - a captivating solo piano recording. As can be expected from Beard, the album does not pigeonhole itself into one style and features eight brand new creations, two full length songs and six short Haikus. Also included are solo versions of compositions featured on other recordings together with an eighteenth century society piece, a Wayne Shorter classic (Weather Report's "Face on the Barroom Floor") and a few standards.

Jim Beard is a friend of mine from college, so I am biased, I was lucky to have been at Indiana University from 1980 - 1985, and I first saw Jim performing when he was 18 (my age at the time). I knew then he was going to be famous, because he had a remarkable skill even then. Over the years, I've been a fan of his music, and one of the voices asking Jim to do a solo piano record, because he plays with such skill and touch. He has that rare gift where he can make the piano do things most people can only dream of - he makes it sing with a lyrical quality that transcends the mechanics of finger upon key; his dexterity and fluidity is "crystalline," such that the notes sparkle, regardless of the tempo or meter; the notes are never crowded, unless that is what he wants to convey his idea. And his harmonic vocabulary is an encyclopedia of languages and cultures that can speak mathematics, Chinese, or whatever the moment dictates; but he never uses it for the wrong reason - the altered 37th comes in because that is what the emotion dictates,

If you like jazz piano, you must own this record; if you like jazz, you must own this record; if you like the piano, you MUST OWN THIS RECORD. Over the past month, I must have played it 50 times, and I'm not tired of it yet. Just ask the "gentleman and hizcaine".I did.
