ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Christmas, Love and Light is a compilation of traditional Christmas songs that come to you gift wrapped in exciting and innovative, carefully crafted guitar arrangements.

These selections have rarely, if ever, been presented in such a way by a guitar performer. The very familiar Flamenco guitar techniques such as tremolos, exotic strumming rolls , golpes (tapping), rapid scale passages etc… were sitting there over decades, waiting for someone to come along and use them on these popular Christmas tunes such as "Silent Night" and "Carol of the Bells". The result? Well… if you love Spanish music, and if you love Christmas music, you will experience these in a very compatible combination.

Yet, along with the innovation, the spirit of Christmas is nurtured by the presence of these, and other selections assisted by lavish string orchestra arrangements, in "Oh Little Town of Bethelem", "Away in a Manger" and others. They will provide you with nice mellowing intervals during the hearing of this recording.

For the sake of variety, you will also find yourself in the middle of some Chet Atkian influence on "Jingle Bells" and innovative DaSilva stamps on the "What Child is This", and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman/We Three Kings" medley.

Along the way your mood will range from being humorously sparked by the fun-to-listen selections, intrigued by a series of interesting ethnical arrangements, all the way to being warm-all-over by the impressions of carols that will definitely evoke that you’re so glad the holidays are here.

Christmas, Love and Light has enjoyed radio airplay nationwide by National Public Radio programming, the Delilah radio talk show and others.

You will be glad to own this recording, that will never be obsolete. It promises holiday after holiday of added enjoyment.
