28 settembre 2019


Disponibile da ieri, puntualissimo per il cinquantesimo anniversario dell'album Abbey Road dei Beatles, il concerto ad esso interamente dedicato che Mike Westbrook tenne a Norimberga il 5 ottobre 1996 con la Band: Kate Westbrook, John Winfield, Brian Godding, Pete Whyman, Alan Wakeman, Andy Grappy e Peter Fairclough (quest'ultimo sostituito da Richard Newby nel bis qui incluso, She Loves You, tratto da un concerto di qualche anno successivo). Lo si trova in digitale ovunque, ma preferibilmente tramite Bandcamp: After Abbey Road.

The Beatles’ Abbey Road album was released on 26th September 1969. Mike Westbrook’s Off Abbey Road was commissioned by Comune di Reggio Emilia, Italy and premiered in December 1988 as part of a Festival celebrating the music of The Beatles. Off Abbey Road was toured internationally by the Mike Westbrook Band and recorded for Enja Records at the Willisau Jazz Festival in August 1989. This later version, After Abbey Road, was recorded at the Gostenhofer Jazztage, Nuremberg on 5th October 1996. She Loves You was recorded at the Willisau Jazz Festival on 27th August 2009 (with Richard Newby on drums). Available as a digital download only.
