Classic Rock N’ Roll With The Power Of Big Band For A 21st Century Mind
Samson Trinh & The Upper East Side Big Band presents their debut album, The Abbey Road Project. The idea started in Spring 2008 as leader/musical director, Samson Trinh and vocalist/pianist, Adrian Duke decided to reinterpret The Beatles’ Abbey Road masterpiece for a classic 19-piece big band. The ensemble would be made up of five saxophones, four trumpets, three trombones, keyboard, two guitars, bass, drums, and three vocalists: Duke, Allyson Mills-Steel, and Curtis Mills. That year, UESBB performed the album live in its entirety. Later on, UESBB members Taylor Barnett (trumpet) and Stefan Demtriadis (bass trombone) strongly recommended that Trinh record the project and introduce the world to a new musical journey down Abbey Road. Thus began a venture that would take nearly two years to complete.
Reinterpreting Abbey Road was a huge undertaking. To pay homage to The Beatles, UESBB didn’t want to approach this project like a tribute or cover band. The goal was to be original while at the same time, do the album justice. ORIGINAL: John Lennon’s vision of The Singles is sophisticatedly treated in a variety of styles: rock, chamber pieces, New Orleans, jazz, and big band swing. JUSTICE: Paul McCartney’s vision of The Medley is augmented with fantastic horn arrangements by Trinh. Simply put… The Abbey Road Project will blow your mind!
So is the public ready to hear if the live big band sound works on a prestigious Beatles album? The Fab Four are considered the most popular and influential rock band. Let’s remember that big band music from the early 1930s to the late 1940s was the rock music of its time. The Abbey Road Project is treated with love. That’s what The Beatles were all about. What better way to celebrate the love of The Beatles with the sonic boom of sound of The Upper East Side Big Band?
So YES! The public is ready to hear The Abbey Road Project !!!
