Burdette Becks a prolific jazz flutist and a wonderful human being. He was a pleasure to work with. I, as one of his band leaders, can describe him as innovative, cheerful, creative, very professional and an excellent soloist. Although, not as famous as Bobbi Humphrey or Herbbie Mann, he was no less talented. The heavenly band just got a new flutist - Burdette Becks. We will do a tribute to him on our weekly jazz watch party on Nov 13, 2020.
His live memorial service will be held at the Advent Lutheran Church, 1416 Vernon Road, Lagrange, Ga 30240 - where he was also an orchestra member.
