"Westbrook's faithful and wonderfully good humored rendition of The Beatles'
1969 album 'ABBEY ROAD' underscores its music-hall whimsy and ravishing melodies.
The Beatles purists I have played it for are as delighted as I am."
Gary Giddins - Village Voice
"John Lennon, the most progressive of The Beatles, would have been delighted
... a real adventure on the borderlines between pop and jazz."
Manfred Schmidt - Stereo Magazine, Germany 'CD of the Month'
A quirky marriage of rock, vaudeville and jazz improvisation… Westbrook
finds unexpected depths in over familiar songs.’ Clive Davis - The Times
