Jim Beckwith


Jim Beckwith & The Intuition is a jazz-influenced quartet featuring the vocals of Jim Beckwith and piano stylings of Erich Lieth, with musical influences based on various music cultures. Most recently, the focus is on working out the details of the classic jazz vocal, soon to be a new CD.


Jim Beckwith moved from Tampa, Florida to Chapel Hill, North Carolina in 2006. The past has been filled with a variety of bands and performances including Native Vibe, MOD, The Irritable Tribe of Poets, The Trailer Park Troubadours and Hu Dost. 2006 passed with the development of new contacts and collaborators in NC which will culminate in a finished new project this year based on the jazz crooner model.
