Pitchfork Reviews A Day in the Life: Impressions of Pepper
We recently highlighted A Day in the Life: Impressions of Pepper, a full-length cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by some of the brightest voices in jazz today—Mary Halvorson, Makaya McCraven, Brandee Younger, Ravi Coltrane, and so on. “They take ownership of these standards—not as grails deserving fealty, but instead as another piece of the musical vernacular, motifs absorbed and repurposed inside an idiom they’ve helped invigorate,” Pitchfork says. Give it a read and this wonderful little album a listen, and see many of its musicians at Big Ears 2019.
