SKU: SMT-628

$ 15.99


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.
