New in the pipeline for Christmas season is my arrangement of the classic Christmas carol “It Came Upon The Midnight Clear.” This simple, clean arrangement for harmonica, acoustic guitars, string bass and sleigh bells adds a touch of upbeat country/Americana to your holiday media projects.
We’re now on the cusp of Christmas season in the U. S. For me, this means a renewed emphasis on my Christmas collection for the next few weeks. With that in mind, I’m featuring ‘Holiday Hustle Bustle’ this week. It’ll remind older folks in your life of childhood Christmas memories, complete with sleigh-bells and klip-klops. It’s available in full (just under 2 minutes) and looped versions – turns out the looped version appears to be a bit more popular this year.
I hope you’ll consider ‘Holiday Hustle Bustle’ for your Christmas video or podcast this year. Staying on the holiday theme . . .
In The Pipeline, Christmas Edition
I’ve uploaded a new holiday-themed item to Pond5 and am awaiting curation. This is a medium-fast jazz quartet (piano, bass, drums and clarinet) arrangement of the traditional carol ‘O Tannenbaum’ (better known in the States as ‘O Christmas Tree’).
Stay tuned here and to my Twitter feed to find out if this gets approved or not.
And if You’re Interested in the History of American Football
I’m planning on posting an excerpt I’ve drafted this week for the book I’m working on about the Dayton Triangles, one of the founding members of the National Football League. Check out the ‘Writing’ menu to link to that content.
Until next week, may you enjoy Thanksgiving, and survive Black Friday.
Snow Globe is a winter holiday single that recalls the sense of wonder I felt as a child when the air turned cold, the snow flew, and children of all ages filled their hearts with the warmth of holiday cheer. This is a digital-only release available to download or stream at most online outlets. I hope you’ll add it to your holiday playlist.
Snow Globe is also available to license for your holiday videos.
