Tribute To Frank Sinatra on SACD!
Joe Beck was an American jazz guitarist who played in a variety of jazz styles, including jazz fusion, post bop, mainstream jazz and soul jazz. After moving to Manhattan in his teens, he began playing six nights a week in a trio setting, and by the time he was 18, Stan Getz had used him to record some jingles and in 1967 he recorded with Miles Davis. By 1968, at age 22, he was a member of the Gil Evans Orchestra.
In a 2007 interview with Jazz Guitar Life, Beck described his early sucess:
"My career happened because I happened to be in the right place at the right time in a very unique time of jazz music. ...when I would finish a gig around two in the morning I would go around the corner to the Playboy Club and sit in with Monty Alexander and let Les Spann take a breather and I would finish the gig for him. Then we would go and listen to Kenny Burrell play around the corner or we would go up to Mintons and listen to Wes Montgomery and sit in with him ..."
