This is a wonderful overview of pianist composer arranger John Beasley’s work on the Resonance label drawn from the albums Letter to Herbie and Positootly! Beasley is joined by among others Christian McBride, the late Roy Hargrove, Bennie Maupin, Jeff ‘Tain” Watts and Brian Lynch. There’s a great imagination at work here and Beasley manages to capture a sense of the jazz past while maintaining a steady gaze on producing a sound that relates to the jazz of today. The arranging is beautifully executed and familiar favourites such as ‘Dindi’ sound new. If you are unfamiliar with Beasley this is the perfect compilation to jump up to speed.
