ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Joe Euro is still often thought of as a classical guitarist but prefers the term “IconoClassical Guitarist" as you will see (and hear) Joe bends the rules of Traditional Classical Guitar with some of his own compositions, variations, techniques such as occasional percussive slap ons/ hammer ons and improvisations, all done instrumentally and with somewhat classical guitar technique.
Euro was beseeched upon for years by fans requesting a Holiday CD, and although he loves many of the classic Holiday music so engrained in our psyches and souls, Joe was not all that motivated to record his versions of traditional Holiday music and Seasonal favorites...until now. Euro realized he’d been “dusting off” his versions and arrangements of many of these classics each year, for Holiday parties and concerts he might perform at. So over the last few years, Joe got a little busy, and every year would release a version of this Holiday Cheer CD locally to his fans and at his retail shop in Port Townsend, Washington..The Wine Seller, and at local shows and mailorder. The first year, only 5 tracks, then one or two more each year until now there are 12 generous and tasty tracks.
Classic Seasonal music such as variations and improvisations on Pachelbel’s famous and iconic Canon in D. With his use of his signature “Big Spacey” sound, Euro does an ethereal intro, then some improvs over the classic chord changes. Euro likes to call humorously his version of The Pachelbel a bit of a “loose Canon”.
There’s also Euro’s rendition of the classic Greensleeves.
A version of the iconic Simple Gifts is done on steel string guitar. There are some arrangements of other Holiday/Seasonal classics as well...Joy to the World; Silent Night; O Come All Ye Faithful; Little Drummer Boy and more, including 2 original compositions by Euro, Snow Day and Winter Sunrise. The latter of which utilizes that “Big Spacey” sound on the background track, Euro has become known for on several favorites from his previous CDs.
Some of these tracks, Euro suggests can be enjoyed year ‘round, anytime. And aren’t necessarily Holiday exculusive.
