Frank Derrick's The Beat Goes On showcases both Frank's Big Band and his Quintet performing exciting straight ahead jazz.
Drummer Frank Derrick has performed around the world and is recognized as a leading authority on drumming technique. This album showcases his writing and arranging skills along with his incredible musicianship. Frank Derrick: The Beat Goes On Artist(s)/Title: Considering how much Derrick has packed into his musical life, it is easy to understand the gap between his recording debut as a leader and this impressive product of his maturity. He's been a busy guy. Among those with whom Derrick has worked as a drummer, conductor or composer are The Duke Ellington and Woody Herman orchestras, Arvell Shaw's Louis Armstrong Legacy Band, Benny Carter, Steve Allen, Eubie Blake, Dorothy Donegan and Ken Peplowski. Derrick is not one of them. Since he moved south in 1998, he has managed to stay occupied. He is assistant conductor and drummer for the Palm Beach Pops orchestra, following up on his work with the Royal Philharmonic, Pittsburgh Symphony, Buffalo Philharmonic, Calgary Philharmonic and New York Pops. He is a featured player and conductor with the impressive new orchestra of singer Bob Hoose. Twenty of the best musicians in the Miami area joined Frank for this collection divided between performances by his big band and a stimulating quintet. The CD is a salute to the jazz drum tradition but, reflecting the balance in Derrick's musical life, he incorporates drum solos judiciously, as elements of the musical fabric.
