I had a great time making this CD. Christmas is a time of family, friends, celebration, thanksgiving, joy, giving and receiving. I love Christmas because Iâ€™m more aware of the greatest gift of all, Jesus. Iâ€™m so glad to have been able to record Little Drummer Boy with my Dad who is 86 years old. He is a wonderful musician and a big part of why Iâ€™m a successful professional jazz musician.
