Merry EWI Christmas Released
My new Christmas CD is now available!!! Youâ€™ve Never Heard Christmas Like This! D and M Records announces the release of Merry EWI Christmas, an exclusive collection of holiday favorites by Electric Wind Instrument virtuoso Bernie Kenerson. His modern arrangements of these classic tunes are refreshing, and the deft improvisations that have become the trademark of this veteran improviser will surely breathe life into your home this holiday season. â€œIâ€™ve always loved these songsâ€”theyâ€™re such an important part of our culture, and I wanted to pay tribute to that.â€ Kenerson explains. â€œAt the same time, I really wanted to do something freshâ€”something contemporary that might help listeners rediscover the revelry in Christmas.â€ Revelry is in no short supply on Merry EWI Christmas, and Kenerson even includes one original composition (and the albumâ€™s namesake). The record closes with a duo performance of â€œLittle Drummer Boyâ€ that features his fatherâ€”a one-time Big Band drummer and full-time supporter of Kenersonâ€™s musical endeavors. â€œThe holidays are about family, and recording with my father put that in perspective for me. Iâ€™m honored to share that with folks.â€ The unique & modern sounds of the EWI range from serene and haunting to joyful and triumphant. Youâ€™ll find the same variety in style, including a jazz waltz, up-tempo electronica and the classic â€˜smooth grooveâ€™ that has made Kenersonâ€™s music so popular. Thereâ€™s little doubt that your friends & family will delight in this fresh approach to holiday carols ~ you may even find yourself listening year â€˜round!
