Christmas Colors now available!
Christmas Colors has been released! This is a collection of 12 original arrangements of popular Christmas songs. Some are crossover (classical/jazz) and some are very pure, simple arrangements. My inspiration for combining a wide variety of sounds and styles in this collection was simply that there are a wide variety of ways to celebrate the holidays. Some traditions are simple and some are complex. I hope the music enhances the way you celebrate.
There will be sheet music available for all of the selections either at SheetMusicPlus or in my personal store. I am grateful to my wonderful colleague Michael Stegner for his guidance and mixing/mastering skills. Ryan Sowers of Pianova voiced and tuned my piano for the recordings. Album artwork credits go to Elizabeth Walsh (my awesome mom!) and Micah Boswell and Unsplash for those fantastic Christmas light photos.
Thank you for listening and may you find peace this holiday season.
