The Beatles, it seems can still do no wrong, and the release of Daytrippers simply underlines the universal appeal that the Fab Four hold. Infinitely more enjoyable to Motown's similar release (Motown Meets the Beatles), the key here is that the songs are moulded to the artist's style, rather than an awkward attempt by US jazzers to become Liverpudlian moptops. It's a testament to the Lennon/McCartney (and in two cases Harrison) catalogue that the songs sound as much at home as jazz pieces as they do in their more familiar rock style. There are successful hybrids of the two styles- Ray Ellis takes "I Feel Fine"s overloaded guitar and welds it onto a more sedate horn led piece- but they real joy is the transformations on show. The icy grandeur of "Because" becomes far more mournful and warm as Shirley Scott's organ instrumental, Herbie Mann's ten minute "Come Together" is a vibes and flute slow groove!, while "Eleanor Rigby" gains two new faces from Aretha Franklin and Vince Guaraldi who simply owns the tune by turning in a meditative shuffle that moves in all the right places. As pieces of jazz, or as a souvenir of the power of Beatlemania, this is highly recommended. --Thom Allott

Nice selection of easy listening Beatle covers. Most are up to par.
The tracks by Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin are outstanding.

This is the 2nd collection of jazz covers from the WEA vaults and depending on how you like your Beatles covers is a good place to start.
Aretha Franklin's version of Eleanor Rigby is actually an answer version.Esther Philips version of And I love him is a stand out and was a hit single in its own right

I have never switched off a Beatles song. I have never bought a Beatles recording either. Son-in-law wanted this. Don't blame me.

A Mixed Bag of Beatles Covers by Jazz and Soul Artists 7 April 2005
By Steve Vrana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Looking for something new for the Beatles fan/fanatic in your life? This UK import includes 19 Beatles covers from the Atlantic and Warner Jazz vaults. [At least that's what it says on the cover. A quick look at the artist roster and it's evident that they also raided the soul and R&B vaults as well.]

The cover includes a still from the Beatles early-Sixties cartoon show and most of the music contained within was originally recorded between 1964 and 1971. [The lone exception is jazz pianist Brad Mehldau's rendition of "Dear Prudence" from his 2002 album LARGO.] The music is divided almost evenly between vocal and instrumental performances. Some of the interpretations are quite good. Clarence Carter does an inspired version of "Let It Be," Arthur Conley adds some funk to "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da," and flautist Herbie Mann turns in a stunning performance of "Come Together." [And at 10:06, it is by far the longest track on the album.] And Aretha Franklin's take on "Eleanor Rigby" was a No. 17 hit in 1969. [Note: There is also a wonderful version of "Eleanor Rigby" done by Vince Guaraldi, but it is only available as a bonus track on the 2-LP vinyl version.]

But there are clunkers here, too. The worst offender is Johnny Harris's rendition of "Give Peace a Chance." [Technically a John Lennon solo number, but they also include Marion Williams' version of George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord."]

Certainly not an essential purchase, but enough good material to entertain even casual fans.
