Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

We're totally enthralled with classic Beatles in original form, but we'll embrace just about any reboot. We might make an exception for the following:

On a serious note, for the jazz enthusiast, our favorite piano trio version has to be the BeatleJazz (Dave Kikoski, Brian Melvin and Charles Fambrough) from over a decade ago. From the other end of the spectrum, there's the Russian Balalaika orchestra for Zdravitsa, some tasty electric mandolin stylings from Jason Anick, and the smooth acoustic sound of the late Butch Baldassari.

We also mentioned the dynamic 2008 Celtic collaboration of Brian Hebert with John McGann not long ago, Any Time At All - a Session Picker's Tribute to the Beatles

Lots of ways to get your fix of the Fab Four.
