Product Description

The Messenger, the new recording by flutist Gerald Beckett, (One of the top flute players in the modern jazz scene - Scott Yanow jazz critic), is non-stop enjoyment and Becket's most exciting release to date. With a mixture of originals and covers by well known jazz greats, it takes the listener on a musical journey from foot patting hard swing to finger snapping Latin grooves. The CD cover alone indicates there is something serious about to happen. The ensemble of musicians on this  project are among some of the best in the Bay Area, such as Bill Keaney (Jaco Pastorius, Brian Melvin), Steve McQuarry (Nathan East, Dizzy Gillespie)....etc. So, sit back, relax, and be prepared to be entertained from start to finish. TRACK LISTING: 1. Anticlimax - Lee Morgan; 2. Little Brown House - Stephen McQuarry; 3. Idle Moments - Duke Pearson; 4. Lupe's Ride - Sharman Duran; 5. Bittersweet - Sam Jones; 6. Sunset Place - G.Beckett/ E. Pliner; 7. Mr Softee - Alan Pasqua; 8 Tempus Fugit - Bud Powell; 9. Sularin's Dogma - Graham Bruce; 10. Searching the Unknown - Kenneth Hawkins FEATURED ARTISTS: Gerald Beckett - flutes Ruben Salcido - alto sax Steve Heckman - tenor sax Gary Zellerbach -guitar Steve McQuarry - piano Ollie Dudek - bass Greg German - drums Bill Keaney - percussion

Review

One of the top flute players in the modern jazz
scene. --Scott Yanow

With all the saxophone players out there today, the
number of jazz flute artists is minuscule by comparison.
Beckett shows that he belongs in the mix and has
both the skills and style to be a force in this
underrepresented genre. --Jazz USA

Here s a musician who is doing everything he can
to keep jazz flute in the forefront of listeners
consciousness ... he swings like mad. --Audiophile Audition
