AN EARLY CHRISTMAS PRESENT!

When Chris Dawson told me that he had recorded a solo piano album of Christmas music, inwardly I cringed, but remained polite.  He assured me that it wasn’t treacly or sanctimonious: holiday tunes that he swung.  I remained hopeful but inwardly skeptical, although I trust Chris.  This evening, I was so busy grinning at the YouTube clip of him ripping through WE THREE KINGS that my skepticism is all gone. 

I want this CD — before Christmas, mind you — and you will, too.  Check this out!  And I’ll have more to say in future.  Right now I’m in stride / swing bliss:
