What Is Your Favorite Jazz Interpretation Of The Beatles?


Sign in to view read count
When The Beatles landed at John F. Kennedy Airport on February 7, 1964, they were greeted by around three thousand fans. Two days later, when The Fab Four performed on The Ed Sullivan Show, the television audience topped 70 million. Popular music was never the same again.

It was not long before jazz musicians followed the lead of countless pop acts in covering The Beatles' songs. The list is an incredibly long one and, some sixty years later, it continues to grow. What is your favorite jazz interpretation of The Beatles' music? To get the ball rolling, what about Bill Frisell's The Beatles tribute album All We Are Saying... (Savoy Jazz, 2011)? In particular, we propose the guitarist's sublime version of "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" (see YouTube video below). Any takers?
