Imagine

Had John Lennon not been tragically murdered at age 40, he would have been 70 years old today. This show pays tribute to one of the most influential songwriter, singer, artist and activist of my generation. On this broadcast, I feature Lennon (and Lennon/McCartney) compositions throughout the entire show. Some of these from John Lennon recordings and others by some great jazz musicians covering his works.

    Beautiful set. Really nice to commemorate one of the great minds in music. The remix of Craig Hartley’s is stunning. Thank you. Happy Birthday John. RIP.

    Some great versions on this show, although not all were Lennon songs - Piggies was George Harrison’s, and Mother Nature’s Son is probably a McCartney song as he sings and plays it on the white album. If I were to suggest another jazz Lennon version it would have to be Freddie Hubbard’s take on Cold Turkey. Great stuff.
