Beatles into Jazz
During the 60’s and 70’s the Beatles inspired a new wave of music setting up culture as we know today, of course along with a whole plethora of other groups and bands doing their bit. They not only inspired and influenced culture, fashion and other music but today we see a rise in the conversation of old classics into other genres.

What we find most profound about this video is that we discover an 11 year old genius turning a Beatles number into an incredible jazz piece. Jazz has always been a very strongly rich music genre and many people think that jazz is dead but when you see that today a child is composing his own jazz, we know that not only is jazz alive and well but it may only just be at it’s infancy stage like this boy’s career. Can’t wait to see what he creates next!
Take home message, be and create whatever you wish, without boundaries, without the negative influence of others, without form. Just be your true self. Be a genius in your own right!
