Christmas Music >

A jazz musician, a folk artist, 20 fingers pulling 14 strings and 19 ancient melodies that time has polished. The music includes pristine old-style classical arrangements, and also subtle and playful jazz harmonizations, weaving around familiar melodies that sound like home. You can practically smell the sugar cookies coming out of the oven, see the kitchen windows steaming up.
