Beatlejazz to Play at New York’s Iridium

Who doesn’t love the Beatles? Their songs are near perfectly crafted, lending themselves easily to reinterpretation in almost any shape or style. Perhaps this is what drummer/percussionist Brian Melvin and pianist Dave Kikoski were thinking when they released their most recent Beatlejazz album, With a Little Help From Our Friends, on Lightyear in April.

Regardless of their original intentions, the jazzed-up Beatles songs will be center stage at New York’s Iridium Jazz Club from Aug. 18-21 as Melvin, Kikoski and bassist Boris Kozlov perform their four-day tenure at the club. Beatlejazz will play two sets each night, one at 8 p.m. and the other at 10 p.m. Reservations can be made by calling (212) 582-2121 or by going to www.iridiumjazzclub.
