Album Notes
Raiff Ellis wrote these jazz Christmas arrangements to celebrate the joy of the Christmas season, gleefully topping it all off with his characteristic jazz sax riffs. Raiff learned arranging and composing as well as the sax and keyboards while growing up in the Mississippi Delta playing jazz on the front porch with his buddy the legendary trombonist Tom "Bones" Malone of the Blues Brothers. Later Raiff gravitated toward modern progressive jazz in Pittsburgh by opening concerts and playing dates with such jazz greats as George Benson, David Sanborn, Ahmad Jamal, Vince Genova, and his mentor, saxophonist Eric Kloss. Now Raiff combines the sophistication of jazz improvisation with his continuing blues roots, applying all these strands to arranging and composing as well as jazz sax and keyboard playing. Raiff believes in the emotional expressiveness of music.
