Pianist-composer John Beasley brings his rhythm section Jeff "Tain" Watts and James Genus from his 2010 Grammy-nominated Positootly! album to showcase the original, propulsive, multi-layered compositions from funk and soul to bop, bossa nova, and nuevo tango with Antonio Hart (sax) and Rashawn Ross (trumpet).
Jazz Times - Positootly! is a good example of what happens when master instrumentalists get together...one of the first Jazz classic albums of the 21st century. John is truly an amazing pianist, imaginative composer, creative improviser and arranger.
