. All You Need Is Love (And Peace):The Beatles In Jazz ( by Lara Pellegrinelli) .














Express Newspapers/Hulton Archive



 
Ringo Starr's gold-plated snare drum will be on display at New York's Metropolitan Museum until December.







"What a drag it is getting old" might be a sentiment appropriate for Mick Jagger's birthday, but Beatles drummer Ringo Starr celebrated his 70th with boyish enthusiasm earlier this month.

Starr asked fans around the world to join him at noon by saying the words "peace and love," the only gift he wanted, and he was honored by New York's Metropolitan Museum, where his gold-plated snare drum — a present from the Ludwig Drum Company during the Beatles' famed 1964 U.S. tour — will be on display until December.

The Beatles have lived as long as many composers of the so-called American popular song (Gershwin, Porter, Loesser). 
And the band's works, now tried and true, have also found a place in the jazz repertoire, even if arrangements of Ringo's "Octopus's Garden" remain scarce (check George Benson's The Other Side of Abbey Road for the only one we know).

Last September, Take Five presented listeners with a Beatles list, using it to trace how jazz musicians have absorbed popular music that post-dates the British Invasion.

This time, for the drummer, is just for kicks. Happy Birthday, Ringo! Peace and love.









All You Need Is Love (And Peace): The Beatles In Jazz











CHARLIE HUNTER












Playing a custom Novax eight-string, Charlie Hunter manages to handle all the usual guitar duties, while grabbing bass notes and keeping time as well as any drummer with textured strumming and slapping.

So much for a little help from his friends. Hunter's car might just be a motorcycle. 
And, no, you can't drive it.

  • "Drive My Car"
  • Album: Come Together: Guitar Tribute to the Beatles, Vol. 2
  • Artist: Various Artists
  • Label: Nagel-Heyer
  • Released: 1995

BRAD MELDHAU 












On the last Take Five Beatles list, we failed to include pianist Brad Mehldau, a contemporary pioneer when it comes to bridging the gap between jazz and pop music. 


You noticed; point taken. When Mehldau hasn't been too busy playing songs by Radiohead, he's performed a number of Beatles gems, including "Blackbird," "She's Leaving Home" and a solo version of "Martha, My Dear" fantastical enough to warrant comparison to legendary pianist Art Tatum. 


Here, in honor of Ringo Starr, we opted for something more straightforward with a little backbeat.




  • Album: Largo
  • Song: Dear Prudence

MEDESKI / SCOFIELD / MARTIN / WOOD 












Medeski, Martin and Wood represent the happy place where jazz gets made into jam.

Guitarist John Scofield, a masterful improviser who knows how to rock out, makes for their perfect partner in crime. 

While the trio-plus-one spends most of Out Louder pushing the groove envelope, "Julia" finds them at their mellow best.

It's more pulsing texture than melody, with a haunting edge. Lovely, lovely melancholy.


  • Album: Out Louder
  • Song: Julia

CHRIS POTTER













"Yesterday" is one of the most frequently covered Beatles songs, at least where jazz musicians are concerned, and this might be its most gorgeous arrangement.


Ballads - wistfully nostalgic and otherwise - don't come with the same expectations for improvisational flights as up-tempo tunes, but they depend on a soloist gracefully embellishing the melody nonetheless. 


Here, saxophonist Chris Potter keeps the tune simple and instead expands the harmony.

When he gets to the bridge ("Why she had to go..."), it just blossoms.




  • Album: Underground
  • Song: Yesterday

BOBBY Mc FERRIN








At least one person is bound to write in to say something like, "Bobby McFerrin isn't a jazz musician."


It might be poor manners on my part, but I'm preemptively going to say that that's complete nonsense. 


McFerrin worked for years with Jon Hendricks, the Godfather of Vocalese, and he's held his own in duos with Chick Corea (in fact, here's a full concert). 


He can do anything.



  • Album: Spontaneous Inventions
  • Song: From Me to You
