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
