Tenor Sax Man Jonny Beckett in Urbana

May 12, 2014

Champaign-Urbana-based tenor saxophone player Jonny Beckett makes music with a variety of bands, including Candy Foster and Shades of Blue, Bruiser and the Virtues and the Heartland Jazz Orchestra. Jazz, though, is his clear love, and he’s put out his first CD with a trio of musicians from Dallas. Jonny will play tunes from the disc with three local musicians in Urbana Tuesday night, and they’ll play for us live on the Monday edition of “Live and Local.”
