“Imagine” John Lennon (alto sax) feat by Fabio Marziali

“Imagine” is a song by English rock musician John Lennon from his 1971 album of the same name. Not only is Imagine a beautiful, solemn song, but it’s history holds lyrical expressions and phrases for baby boomers, that encouraged triumphs over the 1960s and 1970s social struggles, such as world peace, barriers without borders or the divisions of religion and nationality. The lyrics tell of the possibility of humanity could one day live harmoniously, unattached to material possessions.

In 1988, Imagine became the working theme for Lennon’s documentary soundtrack. In 1996, the song became part of the Beatles’ anthology. Shortly before his death, Lennon said that much of the song’s lyrics and content came from his wife, Yoko Ono, and in 2017 she received co-writing credit.The social struggles referenced in the song’s lyrics still exist, the ongoing struggles may be the reason why many musicians of the “now generations” are covering and giving tribute to Imagine, today. Fabio Marziali, a professional, multi-talented musician, shares is sax version so sweetly

. Enjoy!
