As a vocalist, Perry Beekman can hold his own with any of his contemporaries. As a guitarist, Perry adds a bit of the New York panache that elevates these classics to a new rarefied level of excellence. You know the tunes and the highlights here are almost too numerous to list. "My Heart Stood Still" is pure swing, a groove you can use. A personal favorite "Mountain Greenery" is a deceptively subtle swing that attacks when lease expected while "Bewitched" is an exquisite ballad that showcases the Beekman style of literally crawling inside a tune and fully understanding the meaning of each word. A singer sings, a vocal artist tells stories. Enter Perry Beekman.
Pianist Peter Tomlinson shines on "There's A Small Hotel" while Lou Pappas holds court with a stand out solo on "Have You Met Miss Jones." Perhaps the most surprising reharm would be that of "Blue Room" adding a J.S. Bach riff without venturing off the improvisational path. Easily one of the finest trios working the more traditional side of the jazz street.
Perry Beekman raises his game and with that moves to the very top of the pack in the traditional jazz setting. Bewitched is about as close to perfect as you can find.
