MUSIC REVIEW BY Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene - Waxing Poetic

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Daria, a very talented singer from Northern California, on Strawberry Fields Forever performs ten songs composed by either Paul McCartney or John Lennon. However this is not a typical Beatles tribute album or an attempt to merely duplicate the famous versions of their hits. The arrangements of Daria and bassist Sam Bevan turn the pop/rock songs into jazz, often in surprising ways. "When I'm Sixty Four" and "Can't Buy Me Love" swing hard (with Daria scatting on the latter), "Come Together" is transformed into a Brazilian romp, and "If I Fell" fares very well as stirring Latin jazz. Other highpoints include the eccentric "Find A Hole," a very different version of "The Fool On The Hill" and a warm rendition of the ballad "Julia." Daria also contributes one original (She's Going Home") that wraps up the CD quite well. With strong support and occasional solos from top Bay area musicians (including four horn players), Daria succeeds at turning some of the Beatles songs into 21st century modern jazz.
