Vibraphonist Tom Beckham will perform new songs plus material from his soon-to-be-released CD (fall 2005) on Fresh Sound New Talent entitled “Center Songs." His debut CD “Suspicions"; (FSNT) also featured Chris Cheek as well as Reid Anderson (Bad Plus) and drummer George Schuller (Circle Wide).
“Beckham's warmly melodic writing is well served by his approach, one situated between the slow-burn soul of Milt Jackson and the pianism of Gary Burton."
—Jazztimes Magazine
“When he takes the stage he invariably amplifies the album’s energy. I’ve seen him stress his instrument’s percussive side, and in doing so, stretch a solo into a trance-like soliloquy."
—The Village Voice
