The mood of this album is mostly reflective and meditative, filled with beautiful sounds. John Lennon's song is no exception, performed here with a calmness and tranquility that is pure vitamin for the soul. Trumpeter Palle Mikkelborg, playing muted, is true to the song's mood throughout, demonstrating his great lyric sense. The tune is played twice with almost no variations, with Kenneth Knudsen and Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen in supporting roles, but the overall group feeling combined with Mikkelborg's beautiful and sensible interpretation makes this a classic performance. You never get tired of it.
