Album Notes
Guitarist John Basile returns with an eclectic collection of holiday classics in a latin jazz setting.

“Silent Night” features a layering of textures arranged, recorded, and performed using midi jazz guitar and digital recording techniques. Nylon and electric guitars were then added “live” to create an engagingly fresh set of treatments to these classic holiday themes.
“I like to combine the best elements of current technology with the traditional aspects of using real guitars. It’s the best of both world’s as you combine the craft of predetermined musical architecture in the midi world with true jazz guitar improvisation . I think the integrity of each concept is extremely valid and that comes through clearly on “Silent Night”. I think that’s what really makes it work as a total concept”
A jazz guitarist with over 35 years experience in performing and recording throughout the world John has an extensive discography of 15 solo releases ( www.johnbasile.net) and is known for his warm, dark melodic tone and conversational approach to improvisation.
"Silent Night speaks to all things possible when technology marries with the spirit of jazz improvisation.
