Infinite Possibilities

I like to think of this debut album as culmination of my personal thoughts in sound. Coming from a school of jazz that has been fashioned and baptized by fire via influences such as Jackie Mclean, Dexter Gordon, Pharoah Sanders and John Coltrane.

Simply Inspirational
After listening to his fantastic CD, I can honestly say that Beavin is a prime example of a jazz musician who puts his heart and soul into the saxophone. Every track feels like a new story being told. From the cry for passion of "Harlem Shaman" to the raw fury of "After F.E.M.A.", each track elicits a wide range of emotions through Beavin's sound. This album is as good as watching a great live performance at the Blue Note. I look forward to more music from Beavin over the years and watch his career flourish.

wonderful compositions, beautiful tone, great playing
Excellent work! I love the original compositions and the rhythm section is fantastic. Beavin has a beautiful tone on tenor and is an engaging improvisor.

What a GREAT CD!!
When ever I am feeling low and want to bring up my spirits I turn to music. Well, Inifinite Possibilities is the CD I turn to at such times.
From the first note to the last it sends a warm feeling through my body and I immediately feel calm, cool, and collected.
Having the sincere pleasure to know Beavin and his beautiful family makes listening to his CD even more rewarding.
I know that ever note that Beavin plays is straight from his heart and I also know that his music career will just get better and grow through the years. Thank you Beavin for the music and being such a beautiful soul.
Peace to you and yours...

If I had to use two words to describe this album, they would be \"complete\" and \"relevant.\" Lawrence\'s music, in my opinion, embodies the complete experience of good jazz. He is (as are all the participating musicians) a truly accomplished technician at his craft. Any music theorist would be delighted to pick apart his remarkably clever composition technique and improvisations on Roland and After FEMA. However, he is not merely intellectually precise. Whereas many modern independent and/or jazz artists tend to get lost in their own headiness, turning their finished product into a kind of Whitman-esque \"Song of Myself,\" Lawrence and his fellow musicians keep the listener (or at least kept me) locked into the entire process of hearing the music unfold itself. Even after replaying the album several times, I did not ever feel left out, and furthermore, the journey never got old because I felt engaged on so many different levels: The gripping emotional depth of Sheryl\'s Great Adore nearly brought tears to my eyes every time I heard it (and it is not an easy task to bring tears to my eyes); I was nearly entranced by the haunting royal-spiritualism of First There Was a Queen; and the combination of the light, soothing vocals on Harlem Shaman, and Lawrence\'s deep, rich saxophone voice made for a truly ethereal experience. In short, I think this is a gorgeously done album, and highly recommended to anyone looking for a truly worthwhile musical experience.
