Product Description

Grammy award-winning trumpeter and bandleader, Irvin Mayfield, debuts his first album of holiday music with A New Orleans Creole Christmas, a collection of timeless classics reinterpreted by the widely renowned cultural ambassador of New Orleans. With his 12th release for Basin Street Records, Mayfield demonstrates his maturity as a player and arranger alongside The Jazz Playhouse Revue.
The album blends traditional-style playing on the upbeat rendition of ‘O Tannenbaum O Christmas Tree’ with soulful, gospel-inspired versions of ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Winter Wonderland’, and melodic, modern jazz renditions of favorites such as ‘The Christmas Song’ and ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’. Michael Watson graces the listener with his velvet singing voice on the Vince Guaraldi/Lee Mendelson classic, ‘Christmas Time is Here’.
Highlighting the acumen of these fine musicians, A New Orleans Creole Christmas was recorded in true jazz fashion, as a ‘live’ session at Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse on Bourbon Street in New Orleans.
A New Orleans Creole Christmas is sure to delight the serious jazz listener as well as families looking to enjoy a fresh take on their favorite Christmas melodies.
