The Beatles’ music was both respected and popular in the 60s. While the Fab Four as a group pushed the boundaries of rock music and set the standard for the generations to come, each member played their own revolutionary role. The more complex Beatles’ music was growing, more and more jazz musicians were attracted by these extraordinary compositions, which they exploited. The Beatles’ music is truly timeless, and the interest for their song book from all generations of jazz players stands evidence. The tickets for the Jazz Sindicate Live Sessions can be purchased through the Eventim network (Germanos, Orange Shop, Vodafone, Domo retail chains, Carturesti and Humanitas bookshops, and online on www.eventim.ro.)
