It’s Christmas Time in the City – One of the best of 2009

Sunday, January 10th, 2010

Happy New Year! I hope all of you out there listening had a wonderful Holiday and are excited about this New Year.

The best Christmas present I got this year was hearing my music on the radio! “Happy Christmas – War is Over” with that great guitar solo by Steve Lukather, received a lot of airplay over the holidays as well as my original Christmas single “When Winter Falls on New York” featuring the great saxophonist Albert Wing.

I’m also happy to say that my CD “It’s Christmas Time in the City” was voted one of the best Christmas CD’s of 2009 and was featured on the Dr. Christmas radio show, the Christmas Radio network, NPR and commercial radio stations across the country and around the world. I especially want to thank ChristmasReviews.com for including “It’s Christmas Time in the City” in its list of Best of 2009 Christmas CD’s.  I’m just thrilled and honored to be included on the same list along with great artists such as Bob Dylan, Chris Squire, and Petula Clark and thank you Christmas Reviews for putting my Christmas CD right next to one of my favorite artists, Sting.

I want to congratulate my co-producers; Dennis Moody and Kim Hansen, for their great work on the CD as well as Tom Fowler, Walt Fowler, Bruce Fowler, Mike Miller, Gary Novak, Bill Cunliffe and the rest of the cats for their contributions.

Thanks JAZZIZ Magazine for featuring my Christmas CD in your winter issue and for your support of my career in your fall issue. All About Jazz, Magnet Magazine and JazzReview.com-thank you for your continuing support. And I want to thank all of these publications for donating free ad space and for supporting my efforts with Covenant House.

I want to wish all of you out there listening a great 2010!

During the Christmas season I had the good fortune of being interviewed by Barry Gaston of the National Public Radio Moonglow program that goes out to over 45 countries around the world. Here’s an MP3 of that 30min interview. Thank you National Public Radio, program directors, music directors all around the globe and all of you out there listening for your continuing support.
