"Bill Beach is a swinging jazz pianist with a terrific sense of motion, understated pyrotechnics and a fleet set of rhythmic reflexes. Singers and instrumentalists (including well-knowns like Joe Henderson, Mark Murphy and Bobby Hutcherson) have known that for years. What's been kept under wraps is that Beach is also a great singer, with a soft João Gilberto timbre and a yen for slinky bossa novas (sung in Portuguese, no less!). Not to be deterred by a recent car-crash, the pianist is not only getting around but playing at the top of his game."
-Tim Duroche, Willamette Week, 6-15-05
