The jazz vocalist Irene Jalenti has always admitted that much of her influence comes from the popular music of the 60s and the 70s. The Beatles were always played in her household when she was growing up, and many of the songs that she grew up learning were by the British band. Her love for the band was so strong that in 2005 she recorded an entire album with jazz arrangements of the music of the Beatles, the project was called "Back to the Beatles" and was an undiscussed success in Italy.
Alan Blackman is a Baltimore based pianist and award-winning composer. His 2017 release on Summit Records features guitarist Gilad Hekselman and is entitled Chapter 3.
