Product Notes

A unique strand of 'American' music parallels the 'melting pot' or 'tossed salad' metaphors for American society. This American brand of music mixes, blends, and often juxtaposes songs, fragments, and styles into new pieces. Many of my musical heroes are masters of the form: Charles Ives, Spike Jones, Frank Zappa, and Peter Schickele (in his 'discoveries' of the works of P.D.Q. Bach.) A similar tradition exists in the jazz world where composers write fresh themes over another song's chord progression and soloists quote bits of tunes during an improvisation. With this CD, I've set out to create something with a foot in both the jazz and traditional schools, using Christmas melodies as the starting point. These selections don't sound like traditional shopping-mall carols, and I doubt they'd show up in any church service, but I hope the arrangements will entertain and gratify you while providing interest as entirely new creations built upon the tried-and-true. (From the Liner Notes by Tom Kamp)
