The CD Release features longtime collaborator and world renown vocalist, Renee Olstead on this unique edition of Beatle Mania through Daversa's creative lens.

Video: Bio info -OneSheet: Website:

"… the trumpeter takes it to the streets here as he brings his big band to a live setting to deliver another Beatles album that is anything but another Beatles album. Jazz and Beatles is nothing new to behold but the special sauce liberally slathered on here is what makes the difference. Not merely nu stuff for nu ears, Daversa almost single handedly brings a history of jazz to the modern era exploding and reassembling a handful of Fab Four classics. This is a major high point for sitting down jazz".
- Midwest Record

"This is the definition of artistry and creativity. I love this recording"
- Terence Blanchard

"Daversa gets sounds to come out of his little red trumpet like you never heard. The band itself ditto, as if Duke Ellington and Béla Bartók had come down from on high and written some brilliant 21st century music for a big band of Berklee post-graduate superstars"
- Los Angeles Times

Daversa’s celebrated and distinctive musical perspective has been a passport to performances on The Today Show, Late Nite with David Letterman, The Oprah Winfrey Show and he has performed with such artists as Michael Bublé, Andraé Crouch, Sheryl Crow, Bob Mintzer Big Band and The Yellowjackets. As an educator, Daversa has a Doctor of Musical Arts Degree in Jazz Studies from the USC and is currently Studio Music and Jazz Department Chair at the Frost School of Music, University of Miami.
