As a newbie - I'm probably not qualified to say so - but amen to thatI didn't like any of them Even the Tubby Hayes one managed to sound cheesy (but not as much as the others).
That's the beauty of music we don't have to like each others preference or none at all for that matter, otherwise music would be boring ;}I may not know much about music - but I know what I don't like - ;} and it seems to me some tunes just don't transfer well to the saxamophone.... personal preference I guess
The later stuff - say from Sgt Pepper on, was rather different.What is it about Beatles songs? I can't see what all the fuss is about. Simple tunes with apt lyrics for the times. I put them in with the Sound of music and Abba. The tunes won't swing and they hardly rock and the best versions were covers by other bands. I do like to play the long and winding rd though and norwegian wood, and penny lane is fun and I used to play a reggae version of eleanor rigby..........come to think of it........I suppose they're modern folk songs.
