Music of the Beatles
Mike Tomaro directs the Duquesne U. Jazz Ensemble. The concert covers all eras of the Beatles, including two approaches to their music. The first involves exact transcriptions from the recordings: vocals, guitar, bass, drums, piano, strings, horns, etc., says Tomaro. The second approach is more jazz-oriented in which Tomaro freely twists and turns its elements to fit his jazz sensibilities.
