''Christmas Memories'' is my wish to any and all music lovers for a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year now and in years to come. This includes an outreach to those whose faith lies both within as well as those whose spirituality stands outside of the Judea-Christian tradition. There is something absolutely beautiful profound and compelling about the music of Christmas in its melodies, its chord structures, and its quite often overexposed lyrics. Seldom heard, for example, is the prelude to ''White Christmas'' or the additional verses of ''O Holy Night'' which are included here. The elegance and simplicity of the genre is often lost in the highly regimented and restricted versions of commerical flare typically played at shopping malls ad nauseum. Christmas music was my first and most important introduction to both instrumental and vocal interpretation
of popular and traditional songs and carries much sentimental as well as inspirational meaning for me. I have endeavored to incorporate a jazzy classy sassy approach with improvisation in vocal expression and on Spanish guitar to integrate classical pop and jazz flavors in a unique blend. The title track, the last of twelve selections, includes the spoken word, with solo guitar
underneath. Below is an excerpt from the poem ''Christmas Memories'', available in 2005 @https://www.tradebit.com:

"... Two entranced with love''s intoxicating feeling
Linger longingly underneath hanging mistletoe
Sharing a warm and caring embrace by the fire
While enthralled by the gentle new falling snow

It''s often a time when two hearts fully embark
On a distant journey to an unknown tomorrow
With the hope for much happiness it may bring
Which no one else can buy nor steal nor borrow ..."

I hope you will enjoy ''Christmas Memories'' heartfelt perspective year round. It has indeed been a
labor of love both a year and a life time in the making. Thank you for your support.

Happy Holidays
