Sean Beier, Shebooks, Full Circle Dance Company, and "Like Father, Like Son"...

 
  Sean Beier pays is a visit with a bounty of new material – four albums worth.  Three of the discs capture the lush, live sound of Beier’s down-tempo jazz trio, Steady Pleasures.  The fourth is a fascinating, idiosyncratic solo project created entirely on an iPhone.  Beier joins Aaron Henkin for a tour through the new music.  (You'll find Beier's' new CDs here and details on his Feb 26 show at the Parlor here.)
