John Daversa 'Kaleidoscope Eyes: Music of the Beatles' - Review from Midwest Records
JOHN DAVERSA/Kaleidoscope Eyes-Music of the Beatles: An educator that uses the freedom the security of his day job gives to give back to the minds he's shaping, the trumpeter takes it to the streets here as he brings his big band to a live setting to deliver another Beatles album that is anything but another Beatles album. Jazz and Beatles is nothing new to behold but the special sauce liberally slathered on here is what makes the difference. Not merely nu stuff for nu ears, Daversa almost single handedly brings a history of jazz to the modern era exploding and reassembling a handful of Fab Four classics. This is a major high point for sitting down jazz. Check it out.
