The song ideas and recording of this CD started in the fall of 2008 with three of
my new compositions: “Grandpa Got Railroaded by Rudolph”, “A Christmas Song”,
and “Happy Birthday Baby Jesus”, I also did a special arrangement of Jose Feliciano’s,
“Feliz Navidad”. I spent the following winter and early spring recording another
CD entitled: JAMAICA ME CRAZY, which will be released January 2010.
After a very busy summer, I decided in late September to complete this album.
The inspiration for two new compositions “Santa Claus Ho Ho Ho” and
“Yes We Can”, started a very important phase of this project, and for the next
six weeks, I was totally consumed with recording and arranging these songs.
Getting up at 10am and going nonstop ‘til 5am. I also purchased licensing to
record and publish “Winter Wonderland”, “Guantanamera”, “Chestnuts Roasting
on an Open Fire”, “Jingle Bells”, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, “This Christmas”,
"Rudolph the Red nosed Reindeer", “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year and “Feliz Navidad”.
