CD Reviews

Not just a re-hash of well known tunes.

"I think buried in all the commercialism and over-stimulation that the Christmas season is a wish for some time for reflection on the year that just flashed by. This album serves as a small refuge from all the hype that is today's Christmas.

I've had this album as a holiday season mainstay since I discovered it shortly after it's release. It is moving, thoughtful compositions full of nuance and so well composed I have yet to tire of it--17 years later. Mostly I play it during the holidays and it has aged along with me.

Each year, it recalls more memories for me. While all the tracks are unique improvisations of well known themes, it is the the last track, the long track, that is my personal favorite. I would take it into the afterlife if I could."

"I close my eyes and get lost in David Lanz's Improvisations on a Theme (adapted from Pachelbel's Canon in D major) Guaranteed to sweep you away....."

"I bought this tape back in the eighties after I heard it playing in a music store in a mall. Jones' rendition of "Good King Wenceslas" was so hauntingly beautiful that I had to stop and ask for the name of the tape. Lanz's "What Child is This?" and "Improvisation on a Theme (Pachelbel's Canon) are relaxing while Jones' "Carol of the Bells" is so-so. Almost 20 years later, I still enjoy listening to this tape and would love to get it on CD, if or whenever it becomes available again."
