AllMusic Review by

The Beatles' catalog is full of sturdy, melodic songs that are so well-written and crafted that they are amazingly adaptable, capable of being played and sung in a variety of styles, from polka version to baroque chamber style and seemingly every stop in between. This bright, soothing set collects several Beatle classics done in bossa nova style, and yes, the songs hold up well, particularly Monique Kessous’ surprisingly effective cover of “Come Together,” Lulu Joppert’s breezy “Got to Get You into My Life,” Tanta Menezes’ jaunty “Day Tripper,” and a lush and jazzy take on “Ticket to Ride” from Taryn Szpilman.
