Tom Beckham & Brad Shepik Duo
Here is another video clip – this one from the Flower Starter studio session. It features Brad and I recording the tune “Duet 3.”
MUSIC FOR TWO: My duo CD with guitarist Brad Shepik entitled Flower Starter is now available in Compact Disc format or as digital download in a variety of formats (mp3, flac, etc). Head over to www.beckhamshepik.com and get your own copy!
QUINTET MUSIC: My 2008 CD release Rebound is now available as a digital download in a variety of formats (mp3, flac, etc). It’s a good example of my writing style for quintet and features the always lyrical Chris Cheek, the inventive Henry Hey at the piano, super-swifty Ferenc Nemeth, and pulse-tastic Matt Clohesy at the bass.

I started using Vic Firth mallets in 2004. In the video link below, I’m playing the tune “It Could Happen To You” by Van Heusen/Burke. I was using an extra worn-in set of their Burton M25 mallets. Special thanks to the Vic Firth company for their continuous support!
