ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This holiday collection is a wonderful, fresh addition to traditional Christmas music. An accomplished Smooth Jazz, Easy Listening and Celtic performer, Ms Sparks creates a style that is very today, yet still shows the harp's classical nature. Where as most of the album was recorded using her Concert Grand pedal harp, Feliz Navidad and Christmas Collage were recorded using a traditional Celtic harp. This album also features two original pieces by Ms. Sparks, Caribbean Carol and Harp For The Holidays. These songs showcase the harp with a flamenco flair! This CD is sure to be one of your holidays "must haves!"

The list of people whom Phyllis Taylor Sparks has played for reads like a virtual Who's Who, including the wedding of Natalie Cole, numerous events for Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen, and for H.R.H. Prince Edward on his recent trip to Nashville. In addition to her work as a solo artist, Ms. Sparks has played with the Nashville Symphony on their Carnegie Hall Tour and on the Amy Grant 2001 Christmas Tour. Ms. Sparks and her jazz trio, The Dream Machine, have played Nashville's prestigious Swan Ball. She has also accompanied Josh Groban, Billy Ray Cyrus, Lorrie Morgan and the legendary Ray Charles. While playing with the Nashville Chamber Orchestra, Phyllis accompanied Trey Anastasio, of the rock group Phish, at the 2004 Bonnaroo Festival. "That had to be one of the most surreal gigs I've ever played. Being on stage at a world-known music festival in front of 90,000 screaming people was indescribable. Just the roar of the crowd made you feel like you could do anything".

From Dearborn, Michigan, Phylllis Taylor Sparks holds a Masters Degree in Music Performance from the University of Michigan. Phyllis is a former member of the famous Mantovani Orchestra.

Other recordings by Ms Sparks are **NEW** 2009 A Special Celtic Harp Christmas**. Accents For Solo Harp, Harp Horizons, Heart Strings, I Remember You, and Celtic Harp Sparks!.

Refreshing Christmas
I ordered this CD after listening to a few sample tracks. At Christmas, we are bombarded with lots of noise and this CD offers Christmas selections in a very pure and reflective tone. I love a good vocal performance, but sometimes it feeds the spirit to have some beautiful instrumental music and Phyllis knows how to make her harp sing out with the glory of this holy season!
