With October’s release of A Jazzy Little Christmas, Ernie Haase + Signature Sound dropped their first full-length holiday album in a decade. This collection will be featured during their A Jazzy Little Christmas Tour that kicks off later this month and continues through end of December.
A Jazzy Little Christmas is a collection for all listeners of Christmas music, as it includes holiday classics, seasonal hymns, and an original song written by Ernie Haase. As the title indicates, the jazz-like sound and instrumentation of the album help the listener to feel the Christmas spirit throughout. Do not be fooled though, as the jazz instrumentation is adjusted for both contemporary and traditional arrangements.
“Christmas in Manhattan”, the original song on the album, instantly evokes the feelings of walking through snowy, decorated streets with those you love. The arrangement of “We Three Kings” effectively uses the four voices in unison and harmony to highlight different lyrics and portions of the song. The intonation and timing of “O Holy Night” is slightly different than traditional arrangements, leading the listener to lean in and fully appreciate the classic carol.
A Jazzy Little Christmas is a complete collection for all listeners of holiday music and is sure to be enjoyed while decorating your tree or when curled up by the fireplace. Be sure to purchase the album for you and your family to enjoy this Christmas season!
