Modern Jazz Interpretations of Sgt. Peppers Music On Double LP!
This item not eligible for any further discount offers!
Some of today's most meaningful up and coming and established jazz artists pay homage to the iconic Beatles record "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". Musicians were given the challenge to create loose interpretation of these classic songs, and the result is impressionistic, original, avant-garde takes on legendary tracks like "With A Little Help From My Friends", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", "Getting Better", and "A Day In The Life".
"Rather than offering obvious renditions of these standards, the likes of Makaya McCraven, Mary Halvorson, Shabaka Hutchings, and Sullivan Fortner reimagine them in the grandest jazz traditionas fodder and grist, inspiration for making something else entirely. From sweeping solo piano vamps to cinematic takes bordering on post-rock, these versions treat the originals like colorful clothes worn by today's most electrifying jazz musicians, who give these old chestnuts a new body and vitality." - Pitchfork
