To anyone who really listens, it will become immediately apparent that Frank Derrick's 'The Beat Goes On' (Jazzed Media) is an extremely well conceived, arranged, and brilliantly performed CD, marked by an interesting set of compositions that merit very close attention.  It serves as an excellent showcase for Derrick's writing and arranging skills along with his incredible musicianship. The band never stops swinging. Never. The solos are flawlessly paced, and delivered without a hint of waste.  A spirited and inventive big band and quintet that simply doesn't get much better.
