Christmas music is some of the most beautiful music the world has known, and when Nancy gets started playing it, you'll think you're in heaven! She has the ability to uniquely improvise classic carols and meld them seamlessly with her own original compositions, making for an unforgettable Christmas medley! This album was the result of popular demand â€' you asked, and we delivered as usual. While Nancy played last Christmas season at the Portland airport, people would literally run up to her when she would play her unique versions of famous carols and ask "Do you have this on CD?!" Sadly, last year people had to settle (if you can call it that) for simply enjoying them live, in the moment. But this year...she does have them on CD, and you can listen to them all through the holidays! This CD was recorded live at the airport on a Steinway Concert Grand piano, and as such it does sound like a live album. The melodies and tones from the piano are so peaceful and beautiful that you will feel like you are really there. Now, we must tell you, you may feel like it's too realistic, especially when a baby cries in the background during "Away In A Manger"...that wasn't planned though! (And you have to really listen closely to hear it.) The ambiance that this disc exudes is perfect for background music during Christmas parties and other holiday gatherings. You'll enjoy more than 30 traditional and original Christmas songs and variations on this album, all played with incredible feeling. The holidays are just around the corner, and this album will certainly be a hit at family gatherings or when given as gifts!
