"Time of Gathering is a truly inspired musical statement which documents some of the world’s greatest musicians servicing some damn serious grooves." -David Mac, Blues Junction Productions
"If you're old, you'll remember making mix-tapes, now known as "playlists" I suppose, where you could create a musical offering that could capture a mood, a message, a feeling. You could pick from allllll of your favorite genres, and somehow make them alllll work together...and flow. It can be a pretty creative thing to enjoy and share! You could create something that maybe not everyone would've thought of, with your most favorite Artists and styles, finally all together, when you'd never normally get to have them "together" in real life.
I believe that guitarist, Dad, and all around nice guy, Jed Beyer has created the perfect mix of music with his new, VERY SPECIAL CD release called Time Of Gathering. It's a beautiful collaboration of pure talent that was built on love for his dear young 3 yr old son, Nathan, who was born with a still undiagnosed genetic condition.
All proceeds are going towards the steep, uphill financial battle this beautiful family is facing each day still with a smile. It features some of the BEST Bay Area musicians you could dream of, playing in ways that might surprise you. Did you know that Chris Cain is a GREAT saxophone player, and pianist?!? Call me stupid, but I sure didn't know! Did you ever dream about June Core playing jazz? I have, and now my dream became real!! :D Did you ever wish someone would have the sense to sequence the piano great "Last Date" after Bill Doggett's "Squashy", then follow them with "Mother In Law Blues"?? Bet you didn't think of THAT!
BUY THIS RECORD!!! SHARE THE WORD!!! You'll be happy you did...AND you'll be helping a sweet young boy who deserves to smile just like you will when you listen." -Leslie Hagins
"This is the best album to come out in a long time..old school supreme!!! Each song I just go wow and then the next comes along..each equally great or just gets better..even if you aren't into blues this is 50s throwback that those of you my age (70) will love and remember.
