Editorial Reviews

Brian Melvin and Dave Kikoski create a beautiful new standard for the music of The Beatles. The basic trio consists of Brian, Dave and Larry Grenadier. The trio has enlisted a little help from their friends, who happen to be some of the most respected names in jazz, whose stellar contributions help lift this CD to another level. The unparalleled Toots Thielemans (harmonica), celebrated West African Verve artist Richard Bona (bass and vocals) and esteemed Blue Note artists Joe Lovano (saxophone) all provide memorable guest performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reverence for the Beatles by a Consummate Jazz Group March 10, 2007
Format:Audio CD
In this their fourth album, BeatleJazz (the moniker for musicians Brian Melvin and Dave Kioski with Larry Grenadier forming the basic trio that forms the core group for this album) the music of the Beatles is carried into a whole new dimension. This is quiet, sophisticated jazz that takes some of the well-known and lesser known Beatles songs and creates a wholly new source of respect of the composers' works.

Brian Melvin (drums and table), Dave Kikoski (keyboards and synthesizer) and Larry Grenadier (bass) provide some of the most subtle and intelligent jazz riffs on such tunes as 'Pool on the Hill', 'Lady Madonna', 'The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill', 'All You Need is Love' (with vocals by Richard Bona added), 'All Things Must Pass', 'The Night Before', 'Beautiful Boy', 'I Want You (She's So Heavy)', 'Cold Turkey', and 'Waterfalls'. The trio adds the gifts of Toots Thielemans (harmonica), Joe Lovano (saxophone), and Richard Bona (bass), each among the finest pros in the jazz medium and the result is an expansion of the possibilities each of these treasured songs presents as a nidus for creative music making.

This is one of those rare jazz albums that will appeal not only to BeatleJazz's growing audience, but also those who love the eternally viable Beatles songs and those who stand in awe of musicians who can transform the tunes of others into thoughtful, respectful, nostalgic and highly musical jazz modifications. This album is beautifully recorded - and makes the listener want to rush out and but the other three! Highly recommended for a very wide music audience. Grady Harp, March 07

4.0 out of 5 stars Always listenable, sometimes remarkable April 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD
By and large, Beatles covers are a dreadful lot.

They tend to follow one of two paths: a one dimensional transposition of melody performed over standard charts or noodling by small combos whose self indulgence rarely resolves itself in a satisfying statement of the melody.

Truly transcendent reinterpretations like those by jazz pianists Brad Mehldau and Fred Hersh are sparse.

The group BeatleJazz--consisting of Brian Melvin on drums, David Kikoski on piano, and Larry Grenadier on bass--has devoted itself exclusively to performing Beatles pieces. This, their fourth outing, is at worst pleasant and listenable. At its best, it is remarkably good.

Joined by Toots Thielemans on harmonica, Richard Bona on vocals and electric bass, and Joe Lovano on saxophone, this collection succeeds best where it takes the greatest liberties.

Some pieces, like Fool on the Hill and The Night Before, fall into the pervasive category of pedestrian covers. All You Need is Love, featuring vocals by Richard Bona, is similarly pleasant but forgettable.

The standouts include Lady Madonna, which defeats expectation at every turn and demands repeated listening and even analysis. In the midst of bold liberties and interpretations, the piece returns to the peg of a signature phase before launching back out on trajectories that take it to rapturous experimentation on the edge of time signatures and sonority.

Also notable is the trio's treatment of I Want You. The dark Beatles original seems an unlikely candidate for the transition to jazz ensemble. More improbable still is the group's decision to underpin the tune with a funky little backbeat. It works.

4.0 out of 5 stars Familiar but fresh. June 15, 2007
By Seabee
Format:Audio CD
My wife first heard this album and told me about it because I am both a Beatle's fan and a lover of good jazz. On several of these tracks the song was instantly recognizable and on some it took longer. The musicianship is outstanding and I thought the arrangements were creative and enjoyable. Easy listening and fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good! January 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I attended a party over the Xmas break and a friend of mine had this playing later in the evening when everybody was already well lubed and ready for jazz.

I was truly intrigued by several of the pieces and had to go out and buy it to enjoy it moreso when i'm not distracted by others talking and I was in more of a condition to appreciate it. :-)

Its the first time i've come across one of these albums and "I LIKE".

Give it a listen. Its interesting.
