Deck the Jazz Hall
TWO SONGS FROM THIS CD HAVE BEEN PUT INTO ROTATION ON THE CHRISTMASRADIO.COM INTERNET SITE THAT PLAYS CHRISTMAS MUSIC YEAR ROUND. Claud Rivers normally plays smooth jazz. However, on this CD he combines traditional and contemporary jazz styles. He has come up with some very good, new, and fresh arrangements for several of our favorite Christmas songs. This CD breaks the mold of Christmas music being mundane. Claud has done new, modern arrangement on each song and added updated beats. This CD is perfect as background music for a Christmastime gathering. It will surely foster conversations among the listeners. It will also work well as a sing-a-long while sitting by the fire on a cold winter's day. Claud's original song, "It's Christmastime Again," adds a European flavor to the CD. It can easily be used as a Christmas Waltz because of it's 6/8 time meter. This CD is a "Must Have" for saxophone lovers. Claud displays his smooth expressive tone while playing the melody on soprano and tenor saxes. His "Deck The Jazz Hall-Dance Style" arrangement (track #7) will have you dancing and playing this CD over and over again. This is one of the songs added to the Christmasradio.com Internet site. The other is track #3, "O Come All Ye Faithful." Check out these new arrangements of classic Christmas tunes now and I know you will want to own a copy.
