Description:Music: 4 stars; Sonics: 4 stars
"...[S]olid outing, swinging with authority while exhibiting a daring harmonic sense..."
"Sonics are crystalline throughout, with McBride's upright bass registering deep, humungous tones on the low end every nuance of Watts' polyrhythmic dazzle coming through with ease."
-Bill Milkowski, The Absolute Sound

Jazz pianist John Beasley embarks upon a supremely inspired effort with his new album, Letter to Herbie, taking its cues from both the philosophies and compositions of music great Herbie Hancock.

The 10-song CD features Beasley reshaping classic works from across several decades of Hancock's catalog while also contributing originals that bear the stamp of his ideologies. Beasley is primarily showcased in a trio format flanked by first-call bassist Christian McBride and propulsive drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts, with special guest trumpeter Roy Hargrove sitting in on a few numbers and the addition of flautist Steve Tavaglione, percussionist Luis Conte and guitarist Michael O'Neal adding color to a few others.

Beasley's own credits are vast and impressive, including work with jazz giants Miles Davis and Freddie Hubbard, pop and R&B superstars James Brown and Chaka Khan, Quiet Storm pioneers Michael Franks and Lee Ritenour, and jazz vocalists Diane Reeves and Al Jarreau. Letter to Herbie is a well-conceived, well-executed album, with strong performances by the all-star cast. Definitely one of the best jazz releases of 2008!
