An evening pause: Ridenour, on trumpet, arranged the song in the style of early jazz, which isn’t surprising because that’s exactly the stylistic roots of the song, as created by the Beatles.

Hat tip Danae.

    There is a version by the Mona Lisa Twins, that has a distinct Post Modern Jukebox feel to it.
