Jazz Beatles

 

Israeli quintet `Jazz Beatles` was formed in 1997 as a special project for the Tel Aviv Jazz Festival. It includes some of the best Israeli jazz players: Amikam Kimelman (leader, arranger, sax), Eli Benakot (sax), Eric Niceberg (piano), Arie Volinez (bass) and Eitan Itzkowich (drums). Although Beatles` tunes are very popular with jazz players all over the world, this ensemble manages to give them new life thanks to the original arrangements and brilliant playing. This is mainstream jazz, which does exactly what it is supposed to do - it swings like hell.
