CD Reviews

Do not believe what Mr Pearson-Wright wrote...
Stefan | Paris, France | 05/18/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album does NOT butcher Abbey Road. In fact, it's quite the opposite! Imagine what a bunch of zappaian jazzmen can do to such a masterpiece... It certainly sometimes differs quite a lot from the original album but who would want to hear an exact replica of Abbey Road and what would be the interest to listen to such a thing? None! So, what were having here is a jazzified live version of The Beatles' most accomplished oeuvre and a good one that is!
Maybe Mr Pearson-Wright reveres The Beatles so much that it has to be treated with respect and thus duplicate every note at the identical. Mike Westbrook does not share that idea and proves that Abbey Road is still a very much alive piece of music, one that can be played with without damaging the original tour de force of Lennon, McCartney & co...
Do try it (with an open mind) if you have the occasion, you won't regret the journey!"
