BEATLES songs revisited
In may 2003 this unique concept concert drew a crowd of 2.650 persons. The Beatles song featured by a band of our most talented jazz musicians. Phil Abraham undertook to write the arrangements and lead the project and managed to do it with flying colors. The result is a jazz work based on the most known Beatles songs that is destined for a large public while conserving its original appeal. Not surprising when you consider Phil's talent and other enterprises, Charles Aznavour William Scheller, Claude Nugaro, Michel Legrand, Michel Petrucciani, Deedee Bridgewater or Toots Thielemans are but few of the celebrities with whom he collaborated as one of Europe's best trombone players. JAZZ ME DO a very successful project now available on CD!
The great enthusiasm shown by the public persuaded us that we should create a standing souvenir of the magic moments during the various concerts. We now offer a production with some surprises like a première of the newly discovered Chantal Willie of great voice and presence; combined with the performance of outstanding musicians and the highly popular music of those four celebrities of the '60ies from Liverpool is a promise for a high quality album. JAZZ ME DO live takes brings to you talent with emotions.
