Zo groots en technisch ongeƫvenaard als hij is in zijn performance, zo bescheiden, zachtaardig en introvert is hij als persoon. In de muziek valt werkelijk geen greintje ego te bekennen. Dat maakt hem ook sympathiek: hij speelt met overgave en plezier.

Being without self… Dutch saxophone maestro tombekistan describing sax virtuoso Chris Potter. Tom’s blog is a joy to read for anyone interested in music.

Just bought the new album of @tom_beek. First impression when hearing a few soundbites: Breckerish! Cool. Especially love the fact that he does the whole thing by himself: his own record label, his own online shop, and even the design of the CD cover, looking at one of his tweets. One tip: he should add the functionality in his shop that buyers of his CD get free access to the lossless file formats directly after purchasing it. Recently noticed that Darcy James Argue offers this possibility at the site of his record label.
