It Should Be Called Christmas (Live)

by Tom Rule

Piano - a little bit of jazz, a bit of classical, a bit of new age, a bit of house, all swirled together in an interesting and deep mixture that will withstand multiple listenings. Be still and just listen.... it's worth the time spent.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With a mix of lounge, bebop, jazz, and classical influences, you’ll enjoy familiar Christmas music coupled with brand new takes and styles – featuring Christmas music that HASN’T been overplayed. You’ve walked into stores and heard the same 50 songs that play on every radio station, Pandora playlist, and probably on your own phone. Tom wants you to feel right at home this Christmas with these tunes – but to explore new ways of experiencing them.

There’s also two brand new songs aimed at getting your toes tapping and your head thinking! For example: You know the song “Go Tell It” – most of us sang us growing up. But have you ever thought about telling it over the field and everywhere…to a jazz club melody?

Welcome to creative Christmas music.

Having worked with names such as Darius Rucker, The Grapevine, Joey Stuckey, and select members of The Mile High Orchestra, enjoy the culmination of 30+ years in the music industry on one album as you celebrate the season! Have a listen to his latest release, in addition to previous albums under the name Tom&Co as well as Tom Rule, and bring in the holidays with music that will jazz up your typical playlist.

It really SHOULD be called “CHRISTmas”!

This album is the LIVE solo piano version of Tom's successful similalry-titled 2015 release. The tracks were all performed live on youtube. There are several tunes that do NOT appear of the original release, including Tom's unique take on a Spyrogyra tune ["Shaker Dance", which has absolutely nothing to do with Christmas - Tom just wanted to play it] and a certain VERY famous Vince Guaraldi tune associated with the Peanuts Christmas Special ["ChristmasTime is Here"].

There are also a couple of solo piano reworkings of arrangements from the tom&co album Seasons, especially the final track on the album: Angels We Have Heard, where Tom shows off his Rock Piano chops.

Listen, enjoy, and spread the word! Tom can be found online, and Facebook and Twitter as well.

Fun fact: Tom’s entire immediate family has been involved in the process of creating this album. His wife, Pam, is a vocalist on multiple tracks. His oldest son, Caleb, and Caleb’s wife, Chelsea, helped with the website design, marketing, writing, and design of the album. His youngest son, Patrick, came up with the album cover and other related graphic design projects.

It’s been a blast – thank you for sharing in it with us all!
