New Music: Walter Beasley-It's Alright
California's Walter Beasley has recorded 25 albums over the years in a formidable music career. You've heard most of them on Jazz 91.9 WCLK. He's also a Professor at Berklee School of Music. His latest record on his own Affable Records label is called Going Home, and features collaborations with Clark Atlanta University's own Phil Davis, Derek Scott, Trey Gilbert, Will Downing and Derek Cannon.
Atlanta's Jazz Station is currently featuring Beasley's single It's Alright, who's R&B shuffle beat is straight out of late period Marvin Gaye(think Got To Give It Up) but the saxophone is all Walter Beasley.
