When Harry Beckett, the fine Barbadian trumpeter, died in July, the UK lost one of its most instantly recognisable jazz soloists. In his last years, Beckett had collaborated with pop producers and explored unfamiliar formats for improvisation, but these sessions from the late 1980s and early 90s are unabashedly jazzy. As befits a man of his stature (he was a co-founder of the Jazz Warriors), Beckett often found himself in the classiest company. This charisma is confirmed here by lineups including the star pianist/bandleaders Chris McGregor, Django Bates and Joachim Kühn, trombonist Annie Whitehead and a 23-year-old Courtney Pine. Beckett's warm tone and springy, lyrical melodic style was constantly embellished by a favourite downhill-skipping phrase that he'd work in everywhere he could – immediately evident here on themes as different as the casually swinging Bessie's Blues and the softly brassy ballad-duet with a Satie-like Bates on Les Jardins du Casino. Amsterdam, with Kühn and the majestic French bassist JF Jenny-Clarke, is a highlight, as are two tracks for a quintet featuring Whitehead, and the almost 25-minute live set Cozy'n'Rozy, featuring McGregor and a soul-grooving Pine. - The Guardian
