N-Motion Entertainment will be presenting the Jazz Intervention Project featuring saxophonist Walter Beasley, the Jazz Intervention Project All-Star Jazz Band and Ms. Savannah Wiggins on Sunday June 8, 2014 @ 6:30 pm at Rodef Shalom, 4905 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213.
Over the past three decades, saxophonist, Walter Beasley, has artfully and dynamically redefined the phrase "musical Renaissance Man" for the modern generation. Considered by fans and critics alike as the "heir to Grover Washington, Jr.'s Throne", Beasley is the acclaimed saxophonist, vocalist, educator, and entrepreneur of the decade.
As the highest selling full-time Professor / Recording Artist in history, the Boston-based musician has long mastered an exhilarating high wire act of balancing a successful career as a contemporary jazz recording artist and performer with an equally thriving presence in the field of music education.
Beasley attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music and graduated alongside such prominent classmates as saxophonist Branford Marsalis and vocalist Rachelle Ferrell. Upon graduation, Beasley accepted a teaching position at Berklee where he continues to share his musical genius with students, nearly 30 years later.
Also appearing on the same stage are . . .
