The Art Of McCartney is a very special project celebrating the songs of Sir Paul McCartney. It features McCartney classics such as Maybe I’m Amazed, My, Love, The Long And Winding Road, When I’m 64, Let
It Be, Helter Skelter, Eleanor Rigby, Live And Let Die and many more, recorded by some of the world’s greatest artists and all backed by McCartney’s long time band.
The caliber of artists showing their respect to Paul’s songwriting genius on The Art of McCartney is simply staggering, with likes of Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, The Cure, The Who’s Roger Daltrey, Brian Wilson, Alice
Cooper, Dr. John, Yusuf/Cat Stevens, Barry Gibb, Jamie Cullum, Kiss, Chrissie Hynde, ELO legend producer Jeff Lynne among many more lending their talents exclusively for this album.
The Art Of McCartney is the brainchild of Los Angeles producer Ralph Sall, who had the pleasure of working with Sir Paul in 2003 to revive a song from the 1971 Ram sessions for a movie soundtrack. Once Ralph
had the idea of an album to honor Paul, he recruited McCartney’s gifted backing band guitarists, Rusty Anderson and Brian Ray, keyboard player Paul “Wix” Wickens, and drummer, Abe Laboriel, Jr. to play the backing tracks of all the songs.
All aspects of Paul’s peerless back catalogue have been explored from The Beatles to his experimental early solo work, to Wings and his latter solo output. Whether it is The Cure’s Robert Smith, Corrine Bailey Rae, Smokey Robinson, Bob Dylan, Billy Joel or Kiss singing, Paul’s timeless songs are re-interpreted in a way that is both new and classic at the same time.
