‘’One of the top flute players in the modern jazz scene’’ - Scott Yanow jazz critic
The Messenger, the new recording by flutist Gerald Beckett is non-stop enjoyment and his 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).
Sit back, relax, and be prepared to be entertained from start to finish.
'’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.'' - Carmen Miller, JazzUSA.com
''...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
''Gerald Beckett is rapidly becoming one of the jazz genre's most admired flautists.'' - Paula Edelstein, Music Journalist and critic for Sounds of Timeless Jazz
