Christmas tune warning! Went into the studio two weeks ago with a dream team band. They were nice enough to record a quick holiday tune for the season. We'll be releasing a full length record of original music this coming year. (no vibe intended by the title!!) Hope you enjoy and happy holidays!

Thanks to Johannes Felscher for the video and audio editing. And Vitor Hirtsch for the video recording. Talk to them if you need aid in these departments!

Totally agree with all responses so far, but a pity that they are so few considering your top class Tenor rendition that you took the time to share with the forum . For me also great musical treatment to a very basic repetitive tune , which is what it is all about. (IMAGINATION )

Enjoyed the music - easy listening (when complex inside) and fresh rendition.
Of course nice people!
Thanks.

Paul,
just read "about me" in your profile page...
Impressive...
Liked Mingus' statement found on the page - "“Anyone can make the simple complicated. Creativity is making the complicated simple” (Charles Mingus).
Was surprised that in my previous post I expressed my feeling about your rendition in tune with Mingus phrase.

Brilliant! My band will definitely add this tune to our next Christmas jazz concert. Your rendition is so...GOOD!
Love the rhythmic feel and of course all of you playing at such a high level. Thanks!

Very nice....as others commented, I like your rendition and your voicing on this traditional hymn. Good musicality all around, I like the piano solo as well. As much as I like saxophone, I wish I could play piano at the same level of proficiency....

Thank you for sharing and best to you, it sounds like you will be recording with this quartet in the coming year.
