"Still the benchmark of songwriting genius"
24 November 2001 | by hernebaySee all my reviews

A wonderful showcase for the talents of these two songwriting geniuses. (Is there a contemporary songwriter who merits a tribute of this kind? - I think not.) A great deal of attention will no doubt be lavished on Peter Sellers' amusing rendition of "A Hard Day's Night" in the style of Shakespeare's Richard III, but the real star of the show is British jazz organist Alan Haven (with master drummer Tony Crombie), interpreting the same song. (Haven also graced the soundtracks of "A Jolly Bad Fellow" and "The Knack"; it is gratifying to learn that his wife is a former candidate for Miss World!) Lennon and McCartney are still the benchmark for aspiring songwriters, and this show should go a long way to demonstrating why.
