Walter Beasley – Going Home

According to his website Walter Beasley was the highest selling full-time Professor/Recording Artist in modern history. He describes himself as musical “Renaissance Man” for the modern generation or the heir to Grover Washington Jr.’s throne. Now we should be impressed.

Behind these titles you find a man, who has devoted his life to music. A man, who walked through ups and downs and has found his inner peace. Beasley’s success as an educator is his seven-day a week work ethic. “I’m in love with my work and this wonderfully crazy work ethic.” No wonder, that he surprises us with a new album nearly every year.

This time it’s Going Home featuring artists like Phil Davis, Derek Scott, Derek Cannon, and Tres Gilbert.

The new album is available on iTunes.
