ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Seasons Greetings & Happy Holidays to you All!

One of my gifted students suggested that I re-harmonize 'Away in a Manger' sort of gospel style. At the end of his lesson I told him he had inspired me to write more. That song is included here along with six other holiday favorites arranged for solo piano.

The other three songs are from earlier projects and feature Mike Figal - Trumpet and Bryan Clark - Guitar on "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" and "A Midnight Samba Clear. Mica Fisher is the featured vocalist on the title tune "Christmastime".

I'm happy to bring you this latest CD of Holiday Music. Enjoy what you hear, and let me know what you liked. There is more music coming in the next year I know you will want to hear. I have been blest to bring it to you. Thank You God for the Gift! All the best to you in 2010!

The Davis Enterprise Review:

“Los Angeles based pianist, Al Daniels...settles into a comfortable groove on "I'll Be Home for Christmas"...Of the seven solo tracks, my favorites are Daniels' whimsical, toe-tapping arrangement of "Decked Out (the Halls)" and his slowly swinging version of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas". "Away in a Manger" and "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" showcase his gentler side; both are lovely readings of these traditional church carols. Daniels is joined by a combo for "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" and " A Midnight Samba Clear", and both give ample exposure to trumpeter Mike Figal and guitarist Bryan Clark. The latter track is the album’s highlight: a lively reading and a clever arrangement…you’ll find good musicality here…I look forward to Daniels’ rise as a jazz artist.”
