Concert at Jazz Bakery

Los Angeles Jazz Meetup member, John Beasley would love to invite all members to his concert.

Beasley, the onetime keyboardist for Freddie Hubbard and Miles Davis, reflects a variety of generational influences, incorporating the emphatic chordal clusters of Herbie Hancock, the rhythmic quirkiness of Monk and the lush intelligence of Art Tatum into a highly refined personal voice. ? Los Angeles Times
John Beasley ?All-Star? Jazz Circle
Buster Williams | Bennie Maupin |Jeff ?Tain? Watts | John


Bandleader JOHN BEASLEY assembles bassist Buster Williams and
multi-reedist Bennie Maupin, two original members of Herbie
Hancock?s Sextet (Mwandishi and Sextant), along with drummer
Jeff ?Tain? Watts, who has performed on every Grammy Award
winning jazz record by both Wynton and Branford Marsalis, to
play music from Beasley?s 2009 GRAMMY considered latest CD
Letter to Herbie, a tribute album to Herbie Hancock.

Jazz Bakery is used to having big names pass through its doors,
but it isn't often that a line-up such as this comes anyone's
way. The combination of composer/pianist John Beasley, drummer
Jeff 'Tain' Watts, bassist Buster Williams and reeds player
Bennie Maupin is a dream come true for jazz fans the world
over, and their performance here is a special moment for Los
Angeles best jazz venue. Their collective CVs probably contain
the names of most of the jazz musicians who have played in the
last fifty years, and they are stunning players in their own
right, with dozens of recordings and thousands of performances
between them. Their music is the product of four lives spent at
the very top of their game, honed by years of tireless practice
and perfected on bandstands across the world. An unmissable
opportunity to witness a truly all-star ensemble.
