◊  Grammy award winning pianist and keyboard player Jim Beard has accumulated a staggering array of credits including composing for John McLaughlin and Michael Brecker, and performing on world tours with Wayne Shorter, Pat Metheny and Steely Dan. 'Show of Hands', is unique amongst his work, however - a captivating solo piano recording. As can be expected from Beard, the album does not pigeonhole itself into one style and features eight brand new creations, two full length songs and six short Haikus. Also included are solo versions of compositions featured on other recordings together with an eighteenth century society piece, a Wayne Shorter classic (Weather Report's "Face on the Barroom Floor") and a few standards.

In deutsch:
◊  Der Jazzpianist, Keyboarder und mehrfache Grammy-Preisträger Jim Beard stellt mit "Show Of Hands" ein Album vor, auf dem der Musiker alleine am Klavier zu hören ist. ◊  Der 1960 in Philadelphia geborene Fusionmusiker komponierte für John McLaughlin und Michael Brecker, produzierte Alben für u. a. Mike Stern und Bill Evans und spielte auf Tourneen zusammen mit Wayne Shorter, Pat Metheny und Steely Dan. In der New Yorker Jazzszene machte sich Beard seit Anfang der 80er-Jahre einen Namen als gefragter Musiker und Produzent. Auf den 20 Titeln von "Show Of Hands" zeigt Beard neben seinen Fähigkeiten als Pianist auch, welch großartiger Komponist er ist. Das macht aus "Show Of Hands" ein perfektes Album für alle Freunde des Jazzpianos und darüber hinaus.
