THIS CHRISTMAS is an instrumental and magic painting with a "nod" artists and composers such as Aaron Copeland, Mark O'Connor, David Grisman, John Fahey, Alison Krause, Leo Kottke and others. There is a feeling of watching a long distant horizon from the comfort of your home and owes much to the beauty of the land that surrounds us. A magical moment ends this masterpiece with a warm thanks to Jimmy Stewart and It's A Wonderful Life!!
"Adams' instrumental interpretations of traditional Christmas fare are simple, peaceful, and evocative.. serene meditative acoustic melodies!" FOUR STARS Peoria Journal Star
I mean, let's get real. Some new age guitarists remind me of that guy in the movie Animal House, the one whose performance is so insipid that Bluto takes and smashes his guitar to bits. Paul Adams, on the other hand, manages to bring a gentle masculinity to bear. In other words, his style is a shade too twangy for new age (hurray for that!) and his tempo is just shy of new folk."
