ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
St. Augustine sadi: "Anticipation is the better part of happiness." Perhaps he had Christmas on his mind when he said it. Certainly all the preparations and reminders combine to help make it such a special time for us. And, as life goes on our imipresions of Christmas grow deeper and richer as each year adds another layer of wonderful memories.

In his new recording Detroit based Pianist Jim Bajor the heart of these associations and feelings on "An Intimate Christmas."
Side one is filled with solo piano interpretations of familiar carols. Though most of them are well known to us, Jim plays each with a freshness and individuality that allows the listener to savor it a new.

But just in case all this contemplation makes you drowsy, after your delicious Christmas dinner, the second halfpicks up the tempo to the holiday celebration with your loved ones lively. Jim is backed by guitar, bass and drums. Now we hear Christmas songs played in a swinging, gentle, jazzy improvosational style reminiscent of the delightful music written for the Peanuts holiday cartoon programs.

So this CD has a lot of variety amoung it's qualities.. Yet, everything we hear Jim play on it is filled with emotion and feeling. It is his personal Christmas greeting to all who listen to it. This is an audiophile all digital recording.

Jim Bajor contines to reside and concertize in the metropolitan Detroit area.

Teri Ross

My most favorite Christmas CD ever!
This collection contains the perfect blend of jazzy classic Christmas favorites as well as warm and memorable newer songs - all of which are the perfect backdrop to holiday gatherings. My family and friends hear this recording each year and still comment on Jim's (and his trio's) talent as "amazing". This recording is truly special...and the guitar accompaniment is spellbinding!!

May Jim Rest In Peace
I feel so blessed to have received this CD now that Jim has passed. His music will live on.

An Intimate Christmas
I first heard this played while at a hairdressers last year before Christmas. Was able to get a copy and having studied piano for many years was so impressed with Jim's variations--it is so delightful--I listen to it very often--perfect as background music. What a wonderful way to listen to the carols--I want to get copies for gifts.
Jim Bajor was an exceptionally talented pianist
the best I've heard. This is a very special album.

My favorite Christmas CD
Christmas just wasn't the same last year when my cassette tape of An Intimate Christmas finally wore out; now I can once again listen to An Intimate Christmas on CD, and enjoy the season with my favorite Christmas music!

Awesome Christmas Renditions
This CD has it all. From solo piano work that is excellent to the songs with the jazz group. It is very reminiscent of the work of Vince Giraldi. Jim Bajor is an awesome pianist.
