Beatles + Jazz = 5 Stars

"If you're like me, and love the Beatles as well as jazz, then this album is for you. Here you have everything from piano solos, jazz trios, jazz vocals, and larger ensembles. The arrangements and improvisations are brilliant, and I am quite sure that even those who aren't that familiar with jazz will enjoy this album. Especially if they enjoy Beatles songs. I really cannot pick a favourite from this album, they are all so good. Really has to be heard to be appreciated."
Not Too Darn Fast For Me!

"...If you're into collecting all things Beatles or just like good jazz, you're sure to like this compilation. George Benson opens with the romantic twist on "The Long & Winding Road". My favorite selections include Chick Corea's simple acoustic piano solo on "Eleanor Rigby", Tom Scott's alto sax on "The Fool On The Hill", David Benoit's lovely "Here, There, and Everywhere", Spyro Gyro's reading of "In My Life", Lee Ritenour's jazzy guitar licks on the surrealistic "A Day In The Life", and the lively rendition of "Blackbird" (I love those trumpets!). Dave Grusin closes with a bluesy piano solo for his reading of "Yesterday"."
Jazzed Up Beatle Tunes

"This is an incredible album especially if you are just getting your toes wet with light jazz. For the Jazz purist, this would probably be too contemporary. Highlights are Nelson Rangell's sax on "let It Be', Arthuro Sandoval's version of 'Blackbird' and George Benson's version of 'Long And Winding Road'. But don't sell the rest of the disc short - Diana Krall's version of 'And I Love Her' shines. Not a bad cut on this album."
