Just checking out John's stuff on iTunes and there's a jazz album that was just released on June 19th titled 'The Universe of John Lennon'. It's got Beatles and solo songs, everything from Rain to Across The Universe to Working Class Hero.

 

JAZZ!??

 

I have to admit, some of it's not terrible, lol.

 

If you check it out, I'd be interested in reading your thoughts/comments. Whatever you do, don't shoot the messenger!

Makes me think of how in the early days they would try and pass Long Tall Sally off as a tune by Lead Belly (not that he was jazz just the type of music the clubs allowed).

Update on the Lennon-hated-jazz thing: I found passing praise of Stan Getz (specifically the 1964 Getz/Gilberto album collaboration) in the February Playboy Interview of the Beatles.

http://www.reocities.com/donal.....layboy.htm

This guy has compiled EVERY mention of the Beatles in Playboy magazine from 1964 through '72! Including innumerable ads for record albums with a stray cover of "Michelle" or random out-of-context use of the phrase "hard day's night". Interesting reading.
