Farewell Jingle Bells

December 26, 2016

On his 1996 release, A Dave Brubeck Christmas, the legendary jazz pianist lends his signature style to traditional Christmas favorites and original Christmas compositions. This album is in his words, ” a very personal statement that speaks to the curious mixture of both the joy and the melancholy of Christmas.”

Tonight I’ll feature the very fitting, Farewell Jingle Bells.

Nuclear Winter Wonderland & Frosty’s Death March

December 16, 2016

I think it’s just a coincidence that I’m doing back to back days of tunes in minor keys. When I scheduled Nuclear Winter Wonderland (Winter Wonderland in a minor key) I figured everyone might just need something completely different – and this fills the bill (and just happens to follow Frightened Rabbit)

The artist is Sean Wesche who by all accounts is a software engineer (his website is blank and his facebook pace doesn’t reveal much detail — as it should be). The record is Evil Christmas Carols and the titles alone should make you laugh

  • Sleigh Ride (Lovely Weather for Pedestrian Casualties)
  • Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (and Reaper of Souls)
  • It Came Upon a Midnight Clear (to Kill You While You Sleep)
  • The Twelve Days of Christmas (Each More Horrifying Than the Last)

I think Wesch has a sense of humor. Oh, he’s a pretty good pianist to boot.

Since we’re in the spirit I’ll feature another fun little diddy, Zombie Christmas by Emmy the Great & Tim Wheeler.

Enjoy.
