Tommy Deering for Christmas
A master musician and Las Vegas legend for decades, he remains one of the Entertainment Capital's most popular pianists. His repertoire includes fresh, unique and inventive interpretations of popular music -- ranging from jazz, pop, and rock songs to beloved standards, movie themes, show tunes and even semi-classical pieces. His recorded music is often heard on the airways. A few notes from Tommy on this CD: Wow... we thought this was going to be much easier... just recreate some Christmas songs and feelings we all know and love; but each song took on a life of it's own. A few songs are originals: I Keep Calling it Christmas Tree In Blue Light A Votre Santé Born in Bethlehem Linus and Lucy's Jingle Bells is just having fun, tipping my hat to Vince Guaraldi. Letters to St. Nick, the last song, starts off as a child, trying to master "Jolly Old St. Nicholas". Each verse turns a page in the development of a blossoming musician. The last verse is me, looking back on all the stages of my own development as an artist. Enjoy! Tommy.
