Thank you SO much for the wonderful Christmas CD’s! Honestly, it’s the best Christmas music I’ve ever heard, and, it’s the first time that I’ve listened to a CD or album in its entirety. I listened to them while running errands on Saturday and not only did they put me into the Christmas spirit, they had a wonderful calming effect. Magical!
You guys are super talented. I have no idea how you’re not world famous. (No, I’m not just saying it – you guys are great).
They’re my new go-to for Christmas music now.
I have an odd hobby of collecting Christmas CDs (around 800 so far) and "O Christmas Trio" is on my top ten list. I am looking forward to the new CD.

Does the Ken Foster Trio have any other CD's available, other then "O Christmas Trio"? My children get upset when I try to put any other CDs into their CD player.

CD review from www.christmasreviews.com
Sometimes jazz trios can be a little dry for my taste, but not this one. This is a trio who can have fun with Santa Baby and You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch and a moment later play The Christmas Song with an understated elegance.
Displaying a command of many styles, they seemed to be at their best with some of their slower paced numbers. Their First Christmas Medley was the most moving selection on the CD; Auld Lang Syne was sweet, too. And I already mentioned The Christmas Song. Ken Foster is a versatile piano and keyboard player who has a knack for getting the sentimental mood just right on these.
But that is not to sell the Trio's faster paced songs short. They are quite comfortable playing up-tempo, such as their almost Caribbean barroom rendition of Jingle Bells.
There is something here for everyone. For example, I'm into great CD cover art, and I liked theirs a lot.
