,,"Lieb Plays The Beatles" ist tatsächlich ein geglücktes Experiment, die oft einfachen Songs der Beatles mit ihren simplen Akkorden, ihren eingängigen Melodien und einfachen Formen in eine zeitgemäße Jazzsprache zu übersetzen, ohne dass das Ursprüngliche und Mitreißende dieser Pop-Klassiker (...) verloren geht."
