Synopsis

Amazon.com
As formula-satisfying as most of his soft, soulful contemporary jazz is, Walter Beasley allows himself the luxury of branching out. On Ready for Love, the alto saxophone veteran goes on his first reggae outing, "She Moves Me," which with its synth trimmings won't sell any package trips to Jamaica, but still should appeal to his fans. Beasley also continues to find his comfort zone as a singer, channeling Curtis Mayfield via singer William DeVaughn and his 1974 hit, "Be Thankful for What You've Got." Beasley's cast of collaborators is large--eight producers are credited--but at this advanced stage in his career, people know what he wants and custom-deliver it to him. --Lloyd Sachs

CD Reviews

If you are Ready for Love... You are Ready for the Best
E | Kansas City | 11/27/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I may have to rank this as the best cd Walter Beasley ever put out and that is saying a lot with all of the great music he has already had. His remake of Free and Be Thankful for What You Got are simply wonderful and soulful. I Miss You is another soulful song where Walter shows his vocal ability. She Move Me really slips up on you and gets you dancing in your seat and not notice. Walter is one of those artist that as soon as I hear he has something new I don't say let me hear it, I go buy it. Once again he made me feel like I got more than my money's worth."
