Originally from Texas, flutist Gerald Beckett is now a stalwart of the San Francisco music scene. Eight years of classical training at the San Francisco Conservatory, combined with extensive jazz studies with some of the leading teachers in the Bay Area, has left Beckett with a firm command of both his instrument and the jazz idiom. He has recorded five CDs. His last CD, “The Messenger” (2014), peaked at #12 on the national JazzWeek charts.  Read more on Gerald at www.geraldbeckett.com

“Beckett’s CD is a hard-swinging feast of original works from various sources, all mixed in with surprises written by Lee Morgan, Duke Pearson and Bud Powell. Beckett invites a host of fine reedmen and rhythm guys to the session, resulting in a well-balanced, invigorating performance. Everyone gets generous solo space, making this much more than just flute and backup guys.”
— George Fendel, Jazz Society of Oregon
