Impulse! has brought together some of the great progressive jazz musicians of our time to pay tribute to The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. A Day In The Life: Impressions of Pepper includes performances and interpretations by artists such as UK saxophonist and Impulse! recording artist Shabaka Hutchings, Impulse! pianist Sullivan Fortner, Verve recording artist Miles Mosley, Onyx Collective, percussionist Antonio Sanchez, guitarist Mary Halvorson, The JuJu Exchange and more. This stellar lineup represents some of the great progressive jazz artists from around the world: Shabaka from the UK Jazz scene, Miles Mosley and Cameron Graves from LA's West Coast Get Down, Onyx Collective from NYC, Makaya McCraven and the JuJu Exchange from Chicago.

The New York City Jazz Record reviewed the disc on pg. 35 in January 2019 issue and commented; "The tracks are, almost as a whole, deep and thoughtful, respectful without being overly beholden to the iconic originals. A rare, truly imaginative tribute album."
