john daversa: kaleidoscope eyes: music of the beatles
The John Daversa Big Band is one of the leading forces of large ensemble jazz today. Composed of the world's finest musicians, the band's current project explores the vast catalog of The Beatles through Daversa's imaginative, genre-fusing arrangements. Longtime collaborator and world renowned vocalist, Renee Olstead, is featured for this unique edition of Beatle Mania through Daversa's creative lens.
“I can go on about this project, but I’ll just say that this is the definition of artistry and creativity. There are different colors and swirls where reality doesn’t seem real anymore, that’s what I get from experiencing this music; an alternate universe where everything is different, but right. It is a universe where everyone is free to be.” ~Excerpt of liner notes written by Terence Blanchard
