Ok, this may not be everyone's (read: anyone's) idea of a Christmas song, but I wanted to highlight a BIAB feature that I think is really great.

I will admit that I had no idea that this was a Christmas song until I looked into it. I've had a version of it on it on my Christmas playlist for years by this cat named Rick Modlin, and whenever it comes up I have to:

A) stop what I'm doing to listen to it, because it is just so good
B) remind myself to get it off of the playlist because it is not a Christmas song

Well, it turns out that it IS a famous and ancient Christmas song, and it has been covered by everyone from Linda Ronstadt to Sting.

This is a trio using:
Terry Clark RD=JazzTerryClark02-Brushes
Neil Swainson 1392 Jazz Ballad Sw 060 (very Simple)

I will tell you that it is NOT POSSIBLE to do a song like this without the very simple bass playing feature that was introduced. Very innovative, and when you need it... well you need it.

Ken,

Really nice! Very rich sound, and good piano work. Beautiful relaxing song. Didn't know it was a Christmas song either.

+another! I never associated it with Christmas. Loved the piano technique - lots of pedal un-damping - nice sounding peeanna, Ken.
cheers

Hi Ken

Nice, sensitive jazz arrangement.

What is the piano that you used in the recording?

Enjoyed the chord inversions in the left-hand, and mixture of nice bright single-key melody really works well.

Thanks for the listen

Thank you everyone for the kind comments! Videotrack- this is a Schimmel 120J acoustic upright piano. Not a high-end model by any stretch, but it seems to record well on this little Zoom recorder that I use.

Hi, Ken !:))

It is a very beautiful tune
very sensitively and softly played
by you ! I think you really are
IN the tune when playing it !!!
I got tears in my eyes thinking
of Christmases gone by together
with my beloved late wife Beni !

Cheers
Dani

Nice production. Enjoyed the listen and learning about the tune. And, yep, I love that "simple" and "very simple" feature as it makes the jazz bass work very well with our blues efforts. Thanks again for posting this one.
