A nice counterbalance for the more traditional renditions of these Christmas favorites.

CD Reviews

Yulestride -- a Tenstrike!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Probably my all-time favorite Christmas album. A wonderful collection of traditional hymns and carols played by a piano soloist extraordinaire. Picture yourself sipping your favorite libation on a cold winter's night by a warm fire, in the company of a great piano player who's treating you to your all time favorites. The sound isn't "hard" jazz or new age; the lighter, "fun" carols, like Jingle Bells, have a playful, upbeat bounce; the older, more religious hymns (Silent Night, etc.) are played with reverence and sensitivity that would warm the Pope's heart. Great listening on its own or as background."

"This is such a lively and fun holiday CD. Since it's just piano, it also (to me) sounds refreshingly crisp and clear after some of the over-produced holiday music. Great party background but also fun to just sit and listen to."
