An R&B-ish participant whose music sometimes crosses more than into jazz, Walter Beasley’s audio is an ideal paradigm for defining “modern” or “simple” jazz, and he a talented musician. After briefly playing trumpet, Beasley turned to saxophone when he was nine and was quickly influenced by Grover Washington, Jr. He went to Berklee University and, after graduating at age group 22, became among the school’s educators. In 1987, Beasley released his first self-titled recording and since that time has documented two units for Mercury and many for Shanachie (culminating with Rendezvous in 2002), furthermore to often associated R&B performers. In 2005, he released his debut for Heads-Up, ON HER BEHALF. In 2006, Shanchie released Live, a concert golf club arranged from 1998. The studio room album Prepared for Love adopted in 2007.
